On the 17th June, we had the pleasure of taking part in Somerfest’s celebration of Taunton and all of Somerset. It was a great way for us to get started with engaging people with the project, presenting maps and other resources to inspire new ways of looking at our towns with regard to surface water. A lot of people visited us throughout the day and entered our raffle to win a water butt – a first step to saving water and stopping it from going down the drains!
We loved the positivity with which people responded to the idea of the project and hope that it’s the start of a productive, positive partnership with communities in Taunton.
Linda from Taunton was the lucky winner of the water butt – we delivered it a few weeks ago and are sure that with the recent weather it’s been working hard!
