As climate change results in more severe rainfall, join Friends of Lewes to discuss practical steps to help protect your home and community from surface water flooding, and get answers to your questions about sustainable flood prevention.

Lewes has experienced severe flooding several times and the town is at increasing risk due to climate change and development. One particular problem is surface water flooding, which happens when there is too much rain for the drains and streets fill with water.

One way of reducing this type of flooding is to slow down the water so that it can sink safely into the soil or drains. This event will look at steps that you can take in your home, garden and street to help protect yourself and your community from surface water flooding. Join Friends of Lewes and experts to delve into practical solutions and answer your questions about sustainable flood prevention.
