Water

We live in a water scares world! Don’t waste the precious water! Whether you’re a resident of our lovely village or a visitor please do your upmost to conserve our limited water supply.

We urge all residents to install water storage tanks. Rainwater is free and although limited at times it is a resource too valuable to waste; storing water helps reduce the pressure on the municipal water supply.
