 There can be nothing more devastating for a property than flood or other natural disasters, yet with our climate becoming less predictable these can sometimes catch us out, as some of the residents in Worthing have discovered in recent years.

Operation Watershed were the major funder for this event and our exhibition follows in the footsteps of some of the projects that West Sussex County Council funded through this invaluable support for local communities.  On display will be examples of how this fund was used to help resolve surface water flooding issues in West Sussex through initiatives taken by local people making a difference to their environment. This ties in with the rain garden workshop and exhibits at Maybridge Keystone Centre over this weekend.

Come and help us map the flooding hotspots in Worthing and Adur and share your stories through our story table.  Maybe “adopt a drain” if you happen to live in an area where flooding occurs regularly, like Tarring, whose flood action group are in the process of coming up with some really creative solutions to a very local problem. 

There are 2 amazing local wetland/land-based projects that are in planning/early stages that will involve the local community.   We would love to share them with you, come along and find out what they are and how you can get involved.

Also find out how the community-minded church that is hosting this exhibition won an Eco Church award and continues to do their bit to help the planet.
