Flood Risk Awareness & Climate Change Adaptation Event

Event Details

  • Date:

An event to provide information about flood risk to the residents of Caversham and Reading. We have had to reschedule to the 18 Dec due to pre-election purdah rules*.

The  guest speaker is Chris Beales, Chair of Reading Climate Change Partnership (RCCP). Chris is a Hydrologist with over 20 years of experience. In his role as chair of RCCP he is leading the partnership through a period of growth and developing stronger links with communities and businesses across the town in order to focus on climate change in light of ever-more regular extreme weather events.

He will be speaking about flood risk from the River Thames, resilience and climate change adaptation.


* Unfortunately Chris is unable to attend public events, during the pre-election period, as he is a public servant. The original event was arranged for 19 November. We wanted to reschedule as soon as possible after the election. Please note though that there could be further delay if a majority government is not elected.
