The Environment Agency has made some changes to the Flood Warnings they issue for the River Stour. These changes should make Flood Warning messages more relevant to local communities and easier to understand.

Residents are encouraged to register for the service via their website ( or Floodline (0345 988 11 88).  (If you are already registered to receive Flood Warnings you will automatically receive these new Flood Warnings.)

New Flood Warning information for our Parish:

Our Flood Warning Area is called: Great Stour from Hothfield to Ashford.  You will need quickdial number 0125312 to access these messages when you call Floodline and select option 1.

If you have any questions please contact Floodline on 0345 988 11 88 or the local EA Flood Resilience Team on 2015
