Heathfield Allotment Trust (HAT) are celebrating the arrival of 30 new Water Butts courtesy of South West Water. The grant which was applied for and awarded in April, is worth nearly £1,000 and will help the Trust reduce the use and cost of ‘town’ water. And rainwater is so much better for the plants too!
Trustees Mandy, Carrie & Sue, pictured here unpacking the delivery, along with the other Trustees are so grateful for the support the team at South West Water have given them – especially Holly Corns. The Water Butts have been allocated to plot holders who have a shed or greenhouse without an existing rainwater harvesting system or to run in series with an existing one. All they need is a bit of guttering or connections to get these water butts filling up fast.
You may not want the rain but the HAT team do!
