Posted on: 23 June 2014

People whose homes have been affected by flooding in Topsham and Exeter are being invited to an event looking at flood prevention. 

The Topsham Emergency Group (on behalf of Topsham Community Association) is hosting a Flood Fair on Friday 4 July from 3:00pm to 8:00pm at Matthews Hall in Topsham. 

The focus is on flood prevention in Topsham, but any Exeter residents affected by flooding in February are invited to attend. 

The Fair will include an exhibition and information on the following: 
• Individual property protection – information on various forms of flood defence from a range of suppliers 
• Community schemes – various agencies will be on hand to give information about repairs to damaged flood defences and plans for enhanced defences for the Exe 
• Grants/finance available – to householders whose properties were flooded in February 
• Emergency response – the Topsham Emergency Group and its role in the emergency. 
There will be a question and answer session from 6:30pm to 8:00pm where residents will be able to put questions to a panel of representatives including the Environment Agency, South West Water and Exeter City Council. 

Further information can be found at the Topsham Town web page: www.topsham.org.uk or by contacting Richard Horne on 07527 221244 or e-mailing topfloods@topsham.org.uk
