Be Cool, Stay Cool, Drink Tap Water at School

For several years now we have offered every primary, infant and junior school in our area a drinking water bottle for each pupil at a subsidised rate. This is part of our community initiative to promote the health benefits to young children of drinking water, especially as the quality of tap water has never been better than it is now. The response has been overwhelming with over 470,000 water bottles delivered to our local schools.
Sue Allery, Portsmouth Water’s HR and Community Officer said “We all know that drinking water is good for a number of reasons such as hydration levels and anything that we can do to support local children to lead a healthier lifestyle can only be a good thing. We have been overwhelmed with the response and support to our drinking water bottle initiative and are therefore delighted to continue with it in 2016 at the same subsidised rate of 30p per bottle.
Over the next few weeks we will be writing to every primary, infant and junior school in our area offering them the opportunity to again purchase drinking water bottles ready for the new school year in September. They can also be ordered by downloading an application form from our website.
