We are hoping to have a stand at the Rawtenstall Flood Forum event at St. Mary’s Chambers this June. This is planned to be a major event, looking to promoting solutions to issues arising from flooding in the Valley.
The event will be open from 2.00 – 8.00pm and we hope to have material on display, showing how our area has historically suffered from flooding.
There will be lots more from other exhibitors, plus refreshments provided.
Watch the local Press and this website for more details!
