Welcome to the Bodenham Flood Protection Group Pages

The Bodenham Flood Protection Group (BFPG) is a voluntary, community group. Originally formed in 2008 as a Sub-Group of Bodenham Parish Council, it became an autonomous community group on 1st April 2021. The objectives remain the same: to support residents in reducing the risk of flooding to properties in the Parish. The Group has a formal constitution which can be found here. The Groupís history and background can be found here.

Contacts. The contact details of the BFPG Committee and Area Representatives can be found listed here.

Meetings. The Groupís year runs from 1st April to 31st March. The Committee holds bi-monthly meetings plus bi-annual meetings with the wider active teams and an AGM held towards the end of April.

Social Events. An Events Co-ordinator organises social events and activities to raise the Groupís profile as well as funds for equipment and running costs. These would normally be spread throughout the year and can include events such as Treasure Trails, Coffee Morning/Cake Sales, Barbecue evenings and Quiz Nights. These events are open to all and the event details can be found here.

Working Parties. The Group carries out its most important function which is to reduce the risk of flooding by clearing drains and watercourses and filling and stockpiling sandbags at fortnightly working party sessions. These are normally held every alternate Saturday morning from approximately 10.15am, between April and September although ad hoc work will be done outside these times as necessary. The work is carried out entirely by volunteers from the local community, working in teams and covered by an insurance policy. The latest Working Party Calendar can be found here.

Sandbags. Sandbags are often used as a first line of defence against flooding and they are available free to Bodenham residents on request. If you need some, you just need to ask. The process is to identify how many you need and get in touch with your nearest Area Rep or Cage Keyholder to arrange to pick some up.

BFPG Mailing list. The Group maintains a mailing list, through which it distributes flooding-related information, publicises meetings and other events, and circulates documents such as the agendas and minutes of its meetings. The Group also uses social media to publicise its activities or to warn residents of current flood issues which may cause local problems. This is currently promoted via the Bodenham Nextdoor pages and the Bodenham Watch Facebook page.

Useful Information. You can find more useful information on flooding here
