Official opening of Freshford Village Pump

Official opening of Freshford Village Pump

Joyce Class children joined members of the community at the official opening of The Village Pump at The Galleries Shop on 26th September.

HRH Duke of Gloucester performed the opening ceremony of this combined bottle filling and drinking fountain, designed to reduce the need for and expense of single use plastic bottles and thus reduce plastic waste.

This initiative is part of Wessex Water’s Watermark Awards 25th Anniversary celebrations to encourage communities to increase public access to drinking water.

The Duke was presented with a re-usable bottle by our children, these now being available for purchase at The Galleries Shop, Freshford Lane.
