Floodex is run in exclusive cooperation with the Association of Drainage Authorities, whose members are the UK’s Internal Drainage Boards, people at the coal face of water level management, flood prevention and management, the other part of the membership includes local authorities. The Show is not just about flood prevention, but covers Water Level Management (WLM) holistically, as many believe an integrated approach is needed to future proof Great Britain against the devastating effects of large scale flooding down to property damage caused by surface water.

NABMA/SLCC Local Council Markets Seminar
Friday 30th June 2017
NABMA/SLCC are again delighted to be collaborating on the promotion of a Local Council Markets Seminar on Friday 30th June 2017. Any local council which currently provides a market or those who have aspirations to do so will want to be represented at this important event.
This year the venue is the beautiful award winning Shropshire market town of Bridgnorth. Bridgnorth is the proud winner of Best Market Town category in the Great British High Street Awards 2016/17 and winner of the Best Small Speciality Market category in the Great British Market Awards 2017.
The town is divided in two - a high town and low town bordered and divided by Britain’s longest river, The Severn. The town has two unique heritage railways: a Cliff Railway that climbs from the Severn to the high town and the famous Severn Valley Railway operating vintage trains on a beautiful sixteen mile stretch of riverside line.
Bridgnorth has won many gold medals in the Heart of England in Bloom competition. There are shops and pubs and events galore and several markets - a livestock market and a Saturday street market as well as a permanent indoor market area and a Friday and Saturday Charter Market under the Town Hall. A private market also operates each Saturday and, through a Market Charter, a Craft Market is held on alternate Sundays during the summer months.
SLCC is pleased to support the NABMA Local Council event and our Chief Executive Rob Smith will be attending to talk about the growing partnership between NABMA and SLCC.
The programme will include presentations about the two major national awards that Bridgnorth has just received; a talk about the local markets and the very unusual legislation that regulates market activities. In addition there will be policy and operational updates from NABMA and an opportunity to ask market experts your burning questions.
Bridgnorth Town Clerk Anne Wilson said, “we are looking forward to welcoming NABMA members and friends and colleagues from SLCC to Bridgnorth. We are proud of our town, our awards and the long market tradition that we enjoy. Delegates will be assured of a very warm welcome.”
The event will be a morning meeting hosted in the historic Town Hall that will include lunch and a market visit concluding early afternoon.
Attendance is free by booking only. Please email [email protected] to book your place.
