Care for the Kennet

on 16 April 2013.

Action for the River Kennet and Thames Water are working together on an ongoing water efficiency project entitled ‘Care for the Kennet’.

During 2012 we met many Kennet residents at community events and were amazed at the positive response to our Free Water Saving Home Makeovers. This year we want to build on that community engagement by visiting residents in many of our smaller villages including Chilton Foliat, Ramsbury and Aldbourne. So what is a Water Saving Home Makeover? It might sound daunting but it simply entails a short visit – anywhere up to half an hour – from a qualified installer who will advise you on and supply you with a variety of water saving devices - absolutely free of charge. The devices range from Shower Timers to basin tap fittings, Save-a-Flush pouches to Shower Heads. The Installer will guide you through the right devices for your property.

You may also wish to consider moving to a Water Meter to help monitor your usage. Kennet residents can request a Water Saving Makeover or a Water Meter at any time by simply calling 0800 3586665.
