A festival to help boost funds to protect a town from flooding narrowly missed being affected by flash floods at the weekend.

The Southwell Flood Fest was held on Saturday afternoon at the Memorial Playing Fields, Bishops Drive, to mark the anniversary of the disaster last July when homes and properties were damaged by rising waters.

The event on Saturday was organised by the Southwell Flood Forum and saw a barbecue and family entertainment.
