Discounted water butts sell out in record time!

Due to unprecedented demand, Bedford Borough Council would like to announce that the subsidised water butts which were available to local residents, have sold out in record time!

 

The Council announced in March that 190 litre capacity water butts were available at a discounted rate to Bedford Borough residents. Just over a month later and all 100 have been sold!

 

Water butts are still available for the price of £28.95 (100l) or £38.95 (190l) and include a buy one get one half price offer. These offer prices are still very competitive in relation to the prices available generally for these models.  Orders are limited to 2 water butts per order.

 

Environment Portfolio Holder Councillor Charles Royden said: “Despite the wet weather of recent weeks, East Anglia is still officially experiencing a drought while a hosepipe ban is also in place for borough residents. Therefore, it is still important that we try to conserve water wherever possible.

 

“The demand for water butts this year has been unprecedented. Last year, we sold 75 water butts all year. This year we have sold all 100 in just over a month!
 
“Water butts are a simple and relatively cheap way of saving water and collect the rain from the roof of your house, shed or garage and can be used to water the garden, saving you money on your bills and cutting down water usage.”
