We joined the Elderflower Fields Festival in 2017 and 2018 in the heart of the Ashdown Forest to ask for your future water wishes. Here's what happened ...

More than 200 children and parents visited us at the wild art trail

Our team was on hand to ask for everyone's water wishes

We asked everyone to write their wishes for the future of water

We asked children to pledge to save water at their homes

All the water wishes together made an art installation

Our magical pipeline broke a few times - but we had some future water engineers help us to repair it!

Each water wish would travel down a recycled pipeline ...

... where we collected over 200!

Pupils from across Sussex created beautiful works of art using recycled materials. Here's a few of our favourites...


Thank you

Thank you to everyone who visited us at the Elderflower Fields Festival in 2017 and 2018 - we hope to be back again soon!

We're very grateful to Caroline and Richie from So Sussex who organised the Wild Art Trail and worked with pupils at schools across Sussex talking to them about water and creating the amazing sculptures around the woods using recycled materials and old water bottles.

Thank you to Nigel, Alex and the team at the festival who encouraged all the festival goers to drink tap water by providing taps around the site - but giving water saving advice too.

All the water wishes have been collated and we're writing up a report to see what key messages came through from our customers.
