Wisbech businesses are joining the #Refill Revolution
A total of 12 organisations will be keeping Wisbech hydrated by supporting a national scheme.
Shoppers in Wisbech will now be able to get their reusable bottles filled with tap water on request at stores displaying a sticker as part of the #Refill Revolution.
Town Mayor, Coun Mike Hill, officially launched the scheme earlier this month by signing up the town council offices.
This scheme not only helps people to stay hydrated but also to save money and help the environment by reducing single use plastic.
Local champion Coun Nick Meekins said: “It was a very exciting day after several weeks of planning.
"We had many visitors to our stand on the Market Place who were very enthusiastic about the scheme. Sally Argent and I visited many businesses in the Market Place area and around 80% agreed to
sign-up to the scheme.
"We will be visiting more businesses in the next few weeks as this is an ongoing programme”.
The organisations which have signed up to the scheme so far are: Wisbech Town Council; Beales Department Store; Terry's Burger Bar; Bygones Cafe; The Globe Public House; Loafer's Take Away; The Rose and Crown Hotel; Wisbech Wool Shop; Sweet Retreats; PT Flavours; Wisbech and Fenland Museum; and Coyote Bar and Grill
