Freuchie Flood Action Group is proud to announce Alex Hill, the Met Office’s Chief Advisor to Government in Scotland and Northern Ireland, is coming to Freuchie on the evening of Thursday 30th April 2009.
We’re lucky to have secured Alex to deliver this presentation and to answer questions on Climate Change. Of course we’ll be especially interested in the flooding aspect of the changes in the climate.
