Northumbrian Water has launched a new campaign aimed at saving water and energy in north Northumberland.

The drive was launched on June 4 and it has been named the “Every Drop Counts” campaign. It will run from June to September in the Berwick-upon-Tweed region and aims to help both domestic households and businesses to save money on energy and water bills.

At the launch event, which was held at the Glendale Agricultural Society as part of the Children’s Countryside Day, 1500 schoolchildren were invited along to learn how they could help play their part in this important endeavour. 

Commenting on the project, Clair Cooper, demand planning project manager at Northumbrian Water, said:

“Launching our campaign at the Children’s Countryside Day was a fantastic way to get young children and the community involved.

“Educating future generations in our region about the importance of using water wisely is a key priority for us and we’re confident that we can have a long lasting impact to help protect this precious resource.

“We’re delighted to be able to bring our water conservation campaign to Berwick this summer and help customers to bust those bills and make every drop, and every penny, count.”

The latest event comes after Northumbrian Water’s 2014 efforts to improve water conservation; 35,000 litres of water a day were saved in the market town of Wooler as a result.

Throughout the 2015 campaign, local residents will be offered free water-saving tools and audits to help them conserve water.
