Severn Trent offering customers money-saving tips at drop-in event at Worcester shopping centre

18th September 2023

Helpful water saving tips and free cost-cutting devices, complimentary children’s books and general advice and support will be on offer when Severn Trent visits Worcester city centre this week.

The team will be calling into Crowngate Shopping Centre in Bell Square on Wednesday, September 20 and Thursday, September 21 and everyone is being invited to come meet the team, have a chat, and make use of what’s on offer.

Running between 9am and 5pm both days, there will also be free advice on how to save water and energy around the home, including how to use Severn Trent’s free leak detection service, and where to get free water saving devices such as shower timers and slow-release water gels for the garden.

Along with that, free children’s books that provide a fun and informative twist on water related subjects will also be handed out.

Teams will also be on hand to chat about Severn Trent’s Community Fund, which has donated more than £400,000 to 17 projects in the county since 2020, including The Old Needleworks Foundation, Wildgoose Rural Training and Droitwich First Responders. 

David Cork, Community Engagement Manager at Severn Trent, said: “We are really looking forward to getting out into the city of Worcester to speak to people and offer as much advice as possible. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about what we offer, and support we can give, as well as learning more about what we’re planning for Worcester over the next few years.

“Our team will be on hand for two days, so if you would like to have a chat or want to find out more or grab yourself some free goodies, then come down to the Crowngate Shopping Centre  and we will be only too happy to help.” 

Over the last few years Severn Trent has invested hundreds of millions into improving nearly 10,000km of pipework across Worcestershire, including a £1.6m Upton-on-Severn flood resilience scheme.
