The flood roadshows set up by Calderdale Council are well underway, and hundreds of residents and businesses have already been to find out more about the plans to help reduce the impact of future flooding.

Sessions have been held in Todmorden and Hebden Bridge so far and feedback from attendees has been positive, said a council spokesperson.

Upcoming roadshows include one at Mytholmroyd, at Calder High School, on Saturday, February 27, from 10am to 1pm. Attendees can discuss flood defence plans; share flood resilience information; receive details of grants available for people affected by flooding; and see practical demonstrations on how to make their property more resilient to flooding.

Throughout the roadshows, people can discuss their questions and issues one-to-one, with a range of agencies.
