Severn Trent to offer money saving tips to public at community pop up event

17th October 2023

Severn Trent will be offering water saving tips and highlighting how to get free cost-cutting devices at a community pop-up event in Redditch this week.

Staff will be on hand to offer the advice at Kingfisher Shopping Centre on Thursday October 19, from 9am to 5pm.

The pop-up event comes after Severn Trent unveiled a new £12.9bn programme of investment for the region. The five-year-plan will see the creation of up to 7,000 jobs, while £550m of financial support will be on offer to customers.

The Severn Trent stand will be set up at the Worcester Triangle in the shopping centre, based at Walford House.

Tips include how to save water and energy around the home, plus advice on where to get and how to use a free leak detection service and free water-saving devices, such as shower timers and slow-release water gels for the garden. Complimentary children’s books will also be on offer.

Teams can also highlight 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 in Redditch, Wildgoose Rural Training and Droitwich First Responders. 

David Cork, Community Engagement Manager at Severn Trent, said: “We are really looking forward to speaking to people in Redditch to offer them 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 Worcestershire over the next few years.

“So if you would like to have a chat or grab yourself some free goodies, then come down to the Kingfisher 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.
