In 2017, it was identified that we needed to install water butts in the village to help with watering of bedding plants in the 37 tubs, 13 troughs, 15 flower beds, in addition to some of the 46 hanging baskets.
We installed 3 water butts in the village in 2018 with a capacity of 1400 litres.
We have now identified 3 more locations for water butts and will be installing 400 litres of capacity in October/November.
We also purchased a small water bowser with a watering wand that can be wheeled around the village to make watering of hanging baskets easier. Previously we have had to carry watering cans and step ladders around the village to enable us to reach the baskets.
