Our City Our River (OCOR) are holding a public drop-in event on Wednesday 19th October from 3.00pm to 6.30pm at the Chester Green Community Centre, just off Old Chester Road, Derby, DE1 3SA. There will be updates on the construction work to build new flood defences and the next stage of work starting. There will also be team members on hand to answer questions about the project. Please contact Cassandra Carruthers on 01332 643488 or email for further information.
