Residents in Newtown are being asked to come up with water saving tips as part of a competition to win a water butt and water saving shower heads.

Charitable body Severn Trent Trust Fund has announced a new digital campaign, aimed at saving water, which it says will also benefit the environment and help people manage their water bills more effectively.

The #savewater initiative is supported by Severn Trent Water, who have donated two 190 litre water butts for recycling water in the garden and two Mira Eco water saving shower heads.

The campaign was launched earlier this month and will run for seven weeks, until 30 September, with the prizes going to the most original water saving tips submitted during the campaign.

The Trust, which offers grants and help to those in debt in the Severn Trent Water area, aims to raise awareness of how to manage water usage and share useful water saving tips.

The competition will run via social media and a list of all the tips suggested will be made available when it comes to a close.

Carol Arnold, Commercial Director of Auriga services, the administrators of the Severn Trent Trust Fund commented, “We are delighted to announce this new online campaign. With plenty of summer still to come, it is a great time to start to think about saving water.”
