Taking place on February 9, within the training session guests will be advised on how to apply for flood grants.

It runs from 2:30pm to 4pm and won't solely focus on rain-related hazards, covering snowfall and utilities failures as well.

A spokesman for the event said: "Attendees will find out what community resilience means and what it could look like, how to develop an action plan, and also how to apply for a grant from the Heart of Bucks Flood Recovery and Awareness Fund which could be used for:

-"Capital items to replace those destroyed by flooding

-"Emergency repairs as a result of flood damage

-"Venue/room hire costs for relocating activities as a result of flooding

-"Community projects to prevent future flooding

-"Training for flood damage/prevention"
