Deluge! The 1968 Great Flood and reducing flood risk today
20th July 2022 @ 7:45 pm - 9:15 pm
Join QWAG’s July meeting for amazing pictures and fascinating recollections gathered from people across the borough – from central Lewisham, Ladywell and Catford, to Downham, Lee Green, and Grove Park.
The threat of flooding hasn’t gone away. If anything, flood risk is rising as climate change continues to be talked about but not acted on, as green spaces are lost to development, and as hard surfacing replaces more front gardens across the borough.
Ahead of September’s flood anniversary you can:
- Add your recollections, pictures, diary entries to Goldsmiths’ In Living Memory page
- Ask your family and friends if they recall the fllod and if they wish to contribute recollections
- Help produce Deluge!, a special Brockley Beer to mark the flood anniversary, by finding and contributing any hops growing locally in a back garden, alley or underused space.
