A film which the CCRI helped to make has been nominated for a Stroud Community TV Award. From over 2,200 films, the public has nominated their best films in seven different categories.

Rural Sustainable Drainage – Natural Flood Management in the Stroud Valleys [A short 3min taster is viewable at https://vimeo.com/139321429 ] has been nominated as one of the best Green Films of 2015.

The film relates to work that the CCRI undertook with Stroud District Council to tackle floods and help wildlife on the streams of the Stroud valleys. Instead of spending hundreds of thousands of pounds on concrete and steel structures, it has been using trees and other natural features to reduce the risk of flooding in the area. Working with local land owners, natural flood defence structures have been built in the headwaters of the Slad Brook and Painswick Stream.

The winners will be announced on 9th March – watch this space!
