In 2017, it was identified that we needed to install water butts in the village to help with watering of bedding plants in the tubs, troughs, flower beds and hanging baskets.
In 2023 we now have 5 water butts in the village, 700 litres at Lord Combermere, 400 litres at the Charity shop and 100 litres behind Boutique and Blooms. An extra 8 being planned for summer/autumn this year
We also purchased a small water bowser in 2018 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.
