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

Wednesday 28 February 2024

Severn Trent staff will be offering handy water and money-saving tips to the public during two drop-in events at the Telford Centre in Shropshire this week.

Staff will have information on support schemes, free meters and how the water company’s Community Fund is supporting worthy causes, such as £49,500 worth of funding to Telford and Wrekin Interfaith Council to make vital improvements to facilities at their building.

The public drop-in sessions will run between 9am to 4pm on Thursday, 29th February, and Friday 1st March in the North Sherwood street area of the shopping centre.   

Details on how to use the company’s free leak detection service will be available, along with where to get free water saving devices, such as shower timers and slow-release garden water gels.

Jade Gough, Community Fund officer at Severn Trent, said: “We would love to see as many members of the public as possible over the two days so we can answer any questions they may have.

“We can also offer really valuable money-saving tips, including advice for people who may need some extra support with their bill. 

“Our team will be on hand for two days, so if you would like to have a chat or simply want to grab yourself some free goodies, including water-themed children’s books, then come down to Telford Centre.”

Severn Trent announced an £11.5m programme of improvements at six sewage treatment works across the county, including Monkmoor last November, as well as unveiling a £12.9bn five-year investment plan last autumn to improve river quality, cutting leaks, creating thousands of jobs, and securing water supplies.

And as part of its Green Recovery, Severn Trent’s Bathing Rivers programme is investing millions in Ludlow to improve the water quality of the River Teme towards bathing quality – making rivers better places to be for everyone.
