The Charnwood Flood Fair had been arranged as a result of concerns arising from Charnwood Area Forum meetings following the floods in 2012.
It was felt that a “one-off” event staged centrally would be the most effective way of addressing the issue, ensuring that all key agencies would be present and able to deal directly with members of the public.
257 people attended the Flood fair, which took place on Thursday 30th January 2014 at Loughborough Town Hall, between 2pm and 7pm. A Thursday afternoon had been selected to co-incide with “Market Day” when many extra people come to town. Promotion and publicity for the event had included regular updates on the Leicestershire Forums’ website, several articles in the “Loughborough Echo”, features on Radio Leicester, a poster campaign, as well as personal invitations to Area Forum members. Over 100 people came through the door in the first hour, which was easily the most popular time, and for the first 90 minutes in particular the venue was very busy. Agencies that attended were positive and very pleased with the turnout. More »
Most people anecdotally were generally very positive about the event, even if they did not have time / inclination to put their views in writing, with just a handful of verbal critics. 115 feedback forms were returned, representing 45%, or just under half, of the total attendees; 84% of those who had experienced flooding at first hand still felt “better informed” through attending this event. For those who had no direct experience of being affected by flooding, the figure was even higher, almost 9 out of every ten people feeling “better informed”. Thanks to all those who gave up their time to come to this successful event, and thanks to all of those agencies who attended and answered questions from members of the public..
