We're delighted to share Water Stories; an ebook that is helping to share flood risk awareness information around the country. It was created through lots of lovely workshops and events that were held and attended in the most welcoming of communities in Rochdale, Bolton & Bury during 2016 - 17.
Thanks go to the Environment Agency for continuing to make this work possible and the many community organisations that have welcomed us and with whom we've developed excellent working relationships including Bolton, Rochdale & Bury Councils, Bolton Council of Mosques, Rochdale Council of Mosques, Communitea, Bury Asian Womens Groups and many, many more.
We'll be putting together our collaborative programme for the coming year shortly.
On the 19th of February, 2018, we held our first of three Flood Risk Awareness programs in Bury, helping to clean up an area on the Roch Valley Greenway parallel to the River Roch in Bury, Greater Manchester. Over 60 people from schools and the community alike came out to support our initiative to clean our waterways and gain a better understanding of the risks associated with littering & flytipping and proper disposing of their rubbish.
Many thanks to Bury Council, the Environment Agency, Bury Active Women's Centre, New Springs Community Project Group, & Bury East Spoke Childrens' Centre for their help with this project.
