Bledington Flood Group is an informal group of residents who own properties that may be at risk of flooding. There is a water height monitor linked to a sms text and email alert system providing early warning in the event of the water hight rising.
We currently have 19 households signed up, all of whom have the option to receive text and email alerts from the system. Some members have also indicated they are happy to help others in the event of flooding, or to help prevent flooding.
We ask existing members to pay an annual subscription of £15 to help cover the cost of the monitoring system for the coming year. This money is paid to the parish council, who pay for the system.
Anyone wishing to join the scheme should contact Leo White on 01608 658416 for more information.
