Have a Drink on Us
Over 2 years ago Winchcombe WaW decided to install a water bottle filler in the town. The project was funded by profits from our walking festival and a donation from Winchcombe Country Show.
Winchcombe spent a long time finding a suitable site and getting an agreement from the site owner. Then they had to apply for planning permission as it was on a Grade II listed building. Finally, they received permission and bought the unit and had a plumber lined up to install it – then COVID-19 arrived! After waiting for 18 months, Winchcombe finally felt it is safe to offer this facility to walkers on the Cotswold Way, visitors, and locals alike. The water is finally flowing and they hope it will encourage more people to use refillable water bottles and cut down on single use plastic.
