Water-saving campaign in Northampton

VIN is currently working with Anglian Water on a water-saving campaign in Northampton, to coincide with the rollout of smart water meters in some parts of the town.  We really want to help them spread the word and wondered if it would be something you would be interested in getting involved in.

Anglian Water can:

  • Provide messages and images for social media
  • Provide free water-saving guides and devices for you to give away to people you’re involved with, or to give away at any events you may be running.  These may include:
    • Bath Buoy – bathwater saver for children
    • Shower timer – this one is just digital not quite as fancy as the new ones but still a good way to time showers
    • Water-saving garden hose
    • Water-saving showerhead
    • Garden water-saving kits
    • Outside tap cover
    • Leaky loo tablets
  • Come along to any virtual meetings or face-to-face events you may be running to help spread the word.

They are very keen to do whatever they can to raise awareness and support people to make little changes, so if you have any other ideas of anything that might be useful for this, please let us know and we’ll happily discuss it with their team.  They would also like our help to promote different tariffs and the Priority Register for vulnerable people, so please have a look and see if that might be of use to any of your clients or members.
