WoW on the topic of AIR in 2019 after our successful Schools Outreach workshops with nine schools in 2018

UPDATE 2019:
World of Water returned to do six school workshops at Court of Noke prior to the Spring Greens Fair weekend 2019. As the theme of the Fair was Air, we arranged a big onsite clue hunt with clues ranging from the weight of rain clouds, the watery origins of crude oil and the harvesting of green crude for air travel.

2018:
The H20bservatory was full of WaterWatchers at Spring Greens Fair this year as nineĀ  schools took part in four workshops designed to explore the world ahead for ‘The Next Generation’

World of Water was one of the sponsors for this year’s workshops and we designed and created specially themed take-home packs for further study. Grant, our co-founder, volunteered to be ‘Artist-in-Residence’ and produced a series of infographics for the organisers during workshops on Yoga, Lexicons, Food miles and Recycling.

2017:
WoW created the first take-back-to-school education packs for Spring Greens Fair School Days which included samples of construction materials through the ages along with drawings and photographs to support further school work on the theme of the Fair – ‘The Idealistic Home’

Well Restoration Campaign / Kington’s missing ‘W’

After years of road renovation in the centre of Kington, the ‘W’ which once marked the site of the medieval town well, is now buried under layers and layers of resurfacing material.

Join our campaign to bring back Kington’s ‘W’.

Water is important and if we hide it away, it makes it very difficult to check on its quality and keep it clean. In medieval Kington, the town’s water well was at the centre of the town and it created a social meeting place for the exchange of news and ideas.

On a wall close to the site, a sign reads :

Nearly all campaigns take a lot of enthusiasm and often pressure to see them through. If you have a bit of both, let’s get together at Border Bean to work out what needs to be done to return this famous Kington road mark.
