We have been pleased to invite Keith Hutchence, our main contact with the Environment Agency, to become our fourth Flood Star. OFA’s Flood Star awards recognise an exceptional contribution to the work of flood risk reduction in our area. Keith will be presented with the award at our Annual Public Meeting in November. We have only awarded this one Flood Star this year: Keith’s award recognises the skills and commitment he has brought to his role in keeping communications between the authorities and the community open and active, making cooperative working a reality. Such cooperation is vital in flood risk reduction. Keith’s work has been of great benefit in this respect.
