Flood Wardens

Tewkesbury Flood Wardens are volunteers who act as the “eyes and ears” in their communities. They act as a key contact with Tewkesbury Borough’s emergency officer, both to receive and pass on messages, and to update from their patch.

Wardens link with others in the community before, during and after a flood to improve local resilience. They might be part of a group working with the parish council to bring together a community emergency plan, or to inform Highways about blocked gullies when they have warning of a storm approaching. They will be able to help with local information about people who might need support and can also link up practical help during the recovery stage.

Tewkesbury provides training in partnership with Environment Agency, GCC Civil Protection Team, Gloucestershire Rural Community Council and other agencies.
