Second refill point for Salisbury

Second refill point for Salisbury

5th December 2019

Wiltshire

An 11-year-old girl has opened our second water refill point in Salisbury.

In September of 2018, Rosie Price and her dad Dominic attended a Salisbury City Council meeting and made an appeal to the City Council to install water refill points in the area. 

A year later, with the help of Wiltshire Council and Salisbury City Council, we have installed a second refill point in Salisbury, after a first was put in the Market Square earlier this year.

The new refill point can be found outside the entrance of the Old George Mall, on the High Street, and Rosie and Dominic were given the honour of being the first to officially use it. 

Catherine Page, community engagement co-ordinator, added: "We are thankful that Rosie, and other young people like her, are so committed to helping the environment and looking after our planet.

“We're playing our part by encouraging communities to drink more tap water and avoid using single-use plastic bottles, and we're working with councils and businesses across our supply region to install more refill units in public spaces."

If you're out and about in the area, bring a reusable bottle with you and give our new refill point a try!
