Our most recent wardening scheme in 2018 was the Newport Emergency Wardens scheme, supported by Newport Parish Council.

Speaking for the Parish Council, Councillor Terry Martin, who has trained as a volunteer along with Cllr John Hobart, said,

“Our local Emergency Warden volunteers will work with residents to get them prepared for extreme weather. The aim being to identify vulnerable people in their wards and give guidance to all on how to prevent flooding. Simple things like moving debris from the watercourse, or their banks at the end of the gardens, can prevent flooding. Identifying local first aiders and able bodied people who might help move furniture and possessions upstairs for local disabled people.”
