INGOLDMELLS parish councillors have given a presentation by the Environment Agency on the campaign for Lincolnshire Coastal Flood Awareness.

Laura Harrison, Louise Robinson and Nick Bromage from the Environment Agency explained the purpose of the campaign and covered four key areas: “What’s the risk?”, “When could it happen?” “What is being done?” and “What can the Community do?”. A parish spokesperson said the event was interactive and a question and answer session followed: “A most useful, informative and reassuring outcome was achieved with questions raised by members on the demobilisation of World War Sirens, publicity, flood gates, beach nourishment, flood wardens, self-help and community expectations and concerns.”

Cllr Colin Davie spoke of improved technology, weather forecasting and on issues surrounding infrastructure and strategies. He said : “People must be kept safe and that their quality of life must be protected at all cost”. The presentation finished by promoting the message that everyone should make a plan.
