Let’s talk about climate change and local flooding

Flooding in Oatlands Road Winter 2014

Flooding in Oatlands Road Winter 2014

Our first open meeting in 2014 will be on the theme of climate change and local flooding.  Join us on Wednesday 21st May from 7.30pm – 9.30pm in West Oxford Community Primary School, Ferry Hinksey Road.  Refreshments will be provided.

There is good reason to suspect a connection between the recent intense and prolonged rainfall in the UK and climate change.  Extreme weather events including flooding are forecast to become more frequent and more severe.  Find out about climate change and what we can do to slow it down.  Share your experiences of local flooding and hear about possible measures to avoid it in the future.
