Water, water, give me water

Gardeners will be fully aware that we’ve had problems with the water supply on the Hungerhill / Stone Pit Coppice site over the last few weeks. STAA are trying to rectify the problems. The new bore hole is creaking under the strain of spring planting. The City Council put the bore hole in last year as gardeners’ use of mains water became unsustainable (last water bill was £13,000!!). Using a bore hole makes economic and environmental sense, but we do need to treat it as a limited resource. So PLEASE start saving and using rainwater, do not leave sprinklers on unattended, don’t water plants in the midday sun!  The Midlands have been lucky to escape the hosepipe bans of the South in the past, but we need to start taking responsibility for water consumption so that all tenants can have equal access to water.
