*Postponed* Bedfords Park- NFM maintenance and vegetation management

***The event has been postponed until the new year***

Thames21 and partners Land of the Fanns have been installing Natural Flood Management (NFM) features on Rise Park Stream in Bedfords Park, Havering. This innovative NFM project is designed to reduce flood risk downstream and is also contributing to national flood management data, by building a series of leaky dams.

Help maintain current leaky dam structures, and clear vegetation to prepare to build new tree trunk dams in the new year.

Meeting point: Bedfords Park car park.
Sunday 13th December 10am – 1pm, please arrive 10mins early to change into wellies
