Can you save water and save your local rivers?

In August 2019 Groundwork South in collaboration with Affinity Water delivered a free four day summer school called ‘Drip Drop Summer School’. The Drip Drop Summer School was an exciting and educational project engaging with young people to help raise awareness about the importance of water saving in a fun interactive environment.

One of the outcomes of the summer school was this fantastic video which was created by the young people.

Water awareness and conservation is incredibly important in Colne Valley. The water we use at home comes from underground sources called aquifers which provide water for rivers and other water bodies as well as for our homes. Thus the more water we use at home means there is less for local rivers and wildlife. Can you save water and save your local rivers? Check out this video to find out more.

The Colne Valley Regional Park is the first substantial taste of countryside to the west of London covering 43 square miles the landscape is a mix of bustling towns, green spaces and waterways. The park hosts an interwoven network of rivers and canals stretching 200km2 as well as over 60 lakes.
