About Us

The Tarring Flood Action Group (TFAG)

TFAG is composed of local resident volunteers and was formed in 2016 in response to recent localised flooding and property damage in the Tarring Conservation Area. 

 

Our core team of Flood Wardens meet monthly and follow the National Flood Forum’s general guidelines on structure, procedure and operation.

 

WHAT WE DO

To help counter the increasing flood risk brought about by Climate Change we have developed a Community Resilience and Emergency Action Plan for the Tarring Conservation Area. More information about this can be found in our ‘Be Prepared’ page.

 

We regularly monitor weather reports and warnings, invoking our Emergency Action Plan where appropriate

 

We maintain a small stock of emergency equipment for use by our volunteers in the event of localised flooding.

 

We sought funding and support for TFAG projects such as Drain Jetting and Raingarden construction. You can find out more about TFAG projects on the ‘Our Projects’ page.

We host ‘Multi Agency’ Meetings with the Local Authorities and other Agencies and Services, to discuss and resolve flood-related issues.

 

We engage with and encourage local schools to take part in educational activities with a flood-related theme.

 

We are a recognised partner of Worthing Borough Council and are part of Green Tides, the Adur and Worthing umbrella group for the protection

Of Green and Open spaces.
 

Our superb volunteer base!

We are fortunate to be supported by a number of willing community volunteers who give up their time to assist with TFAG initiatives such as Adopt-a-Drain, Street Clean, Community Gardening, etc.

 

Most importantly, we can call on a number of volunteers prepared to help out if a flooding event occurs.

We would love to have you on board!
