Glenridding has been chosen by the Environment Agency for a new flood defence pilot scheme.
The village, which was flooded four times last winter, was selected along with three other villages in Cumbria.
The Community Action Pilot scheme focuses on making communities more resilient to floods and improving flood measures for the future.
Sharing and informing is a critical part of the scheme because all of us in Cumbria are going to need to manage flood risk for a continual basis into the future.
A year after last winter's floods, many residents are taking flood protection into their own hands.
It's been one year since the storms hit the Border region - we look at the real cost of the floods in Cumbria.
The event aims to give people a chance to reflect on the floods, which hit the town a year ago.
