Wanted: Volunteer flood warden

The recent floods have highlighted the need for a flood warden in our parish.  Clyffe Pypard Parish Council resolved recently to appoint a flood warden to help coordinate efforts on behalf of the parish.   The role of a flood warden is to be the main point of contact in times of flood and to help the parish to be well prepared.  Wiltshire Council and the Environment Agency Flood Resilience Team both provide support for this role.  Flood wardens provide a link between the local community, emergency services and Wiltshire Council.  They give real time information about flood conditions in the event of a flood.  There is a network of flood wardens across the region who support each other.   If you are interested in volunteering then please contact the parish Council on clerk@clyffepypardbushton.org.uk If you want to know more then have a look at “Wiltshire and Swindon Prepared” web site .
