In 2017, it was identified that we needed to install water butts in the village to help with watering of bedding plants in the 39 tubs, 13 troughs, 15 flower beds, in addition to some of the 46 hanging baskets.
We have installed 3 water butts in the village in 2018 with a capacity of 1600 litres. We intend to install more in 2019 when we have identified suitable locations.
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.
