A celebration of community resilience

The Calder Valley was dramatically impacted by the floods of Boxing Day in 2015. It affected businesses and our communities but there was also a response: residents asked ‘what can I do?’. Slow the Flow Calderdale was part of that response. We are a small local charity working on natural flood management, promoting SuDS/rain gardens, monitoring and education. We have come a long way in three years and we have learnt many lessons about funding, working with volunteers and developing a relationship with the statutory agencies, local authorities and local landowners. We have a good story to tell – but we don’t have all the answers. We want to share, celebrate and learn your story too.
