Join us at events across the region

This year, we will be attending runs, races, sporting events, country fairs and county shows, as well as hosting our own events, including education drop-in days at our recreation sites and apprenticeship open days at our headquarters in Bath.

We are proud to have teamed up with Cancer Research UK's Race for Life, RaceNation and other organisations to help keep runners and event attendees hydrated with tap water from our portable refill points, while also reducing the number of single-use plastic bottles usually generated by these events.

'Around the bend' tours

Join Wessex Water this summer on a FREE 'Around the bend' tours at your local water recycling centre to see where it all goes after you flush your toilet!

The team at Wessex Water provide the unseen service of treating 480 million litres of sewage every day, so this is a unique and rare opportunity to look behind the scenes at how it’s done with a guided tour from one of our operators.

You’ll also be able to walk through the ‘plop-up’ art gallery – The Loove – where you’ll see some familiar works of art re-imagined with a Wessex Water twist...

Locations include: Barford St Martin, Tisbury, Marnhull Common, Ringwood, Gillingham, Chard, Nether Stowey, Crewkerne, Weston-super-Mare, Yeovil, Wells, Westbury, Thingley, Chippenham and Saltford.
