Businesses in the upper Calder Valley are set to receive some valuable flood prevention advice at a special event next week.

The “Yorkshire Tourism Flood Support Workshop” will take place in Hebden Bridge Town Hall, St George’s St, Hebden Bridge, from 9.30am to 12.30pm and between 1pm and 4pm on Tuesday, March 18.

The event is one of four being organised by Welcome to Yorkshire, in conjunction with VisitEngland, and is being funded by a national £2 million Government programme to support businesses affected by flooding.

Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “We’d encourage any Yorkshire business directly concerned about flooding in their area – and how to handle that eventuality – to get in touch and take advantage of these events.”

The other workshops will take place in Malton, York and Hull
