Flood Warden needed!

keep_calm_flood_150xWould you like to serve your community by volunteering as a flood warden?

“Flood Wardens can help local communities to understand their flood risk and that they all have a responsibility to look after themselves, their family and property and to prepare before, during and after a flood.

Flood Wardens are the eyes and ears of the community and often called ‘flood watchers’. Whether they are out walking their dog or just walking to the shop they can keep an eye out for blocked drains and culverts, tree branches in rivers, and anything else that may cause a flood risk and report them to the appropriate land or property owners.” [Northampton County Council Website]

If you are interested in helping our village community as a Flood Warden, please contact the Parish Clerk: or get in touch with any of the parish councillors listed here.
