Egremont flood alleviation works drop in at the Falcon club on Tues 12th November has been cancelled


Regarding the flood works drop in session that was due to take place next week- the EA have emailed to say that it is unfortunately now CANCELLED and will be arranged in the near future after the general election- here is the email we received with the reason and a possible future date.-


Dear All

Unfortunately, due to Purdah, we are having to postpone the drop-in on the 13th November. We have been waiting for confirmation from Defra that we need to postpone it, which we received this morning.
Once the election has taken place, we are in the lead-up to Christmas, and we have therefore decided to postpone it until the New Year. We are now looking at a provisional date of the 15th January, and will forward a formal invite nearer the time, once it is confirmed. Can you please put this date in your diaries please?

Again, apologies, but this is unfortunately out of our hands.

Regards
