Montgomery is to become the first town in the area to launch a "Refill" campaign.

The Dragon Hotel in the town is the first establishment to sign up to the Refill scheme, which aims to clamp down on single use plastic bottles.

Refill is a national tap water campaign which aims to make refilling your water bottle easy and convenient by signing up refill stations. There’s a downloadable map app that lets you know the locations where you are welcome to fill your bottle for free.

Attending a particularly warm Montgomery Street Fair, Sharon Bishop expressed her gratitude and support for the scheme saying: “Thank you for letting me refill my reusable water bottle all through the day and with ice too! A great scheme, especially in this weather."

Stuart Taylor from the Dragon Hotel said: “We are proud to be a ‘Refill Station’. If you are visiting Montgomery and need your water bottles topped up, then feel free to pop in and say hello."

With the Montgomery Trails encouraging increasing numbers of cyclists, walkers and families to visit the town, other local businesses are being encouraged to join the scheme to help keep visitors hydrated, while at the same time reducing the number of single-use plastic bottles.
