Thames Water’s education team has produced its own short film to encourage more schools to visit its free education centres.
The video, which was launched on the company’s social media feeds last month, is aimed at teachers and other education workers to increase awareness of Thames Water’s education programme and promote its five free education centres in Didcot, Kingston-upon-Thames, Rickmansworth, Slough, and Walthamstow.
Last year the programme reached more than 20,000 children, with around 3,000 of them visiting one of the specialist centres.
Paul Hampton, Thames Water’s education manager, said: “Young people are fascinated by the world of water, especially when it comes to finding out where the stuff they flush down the toilet goes.
“They’re our customers of the future so it’s important they understand what we do and also start receiving our messages from a young age to get into good habits such as not wasting water and not flushing wipes down the loo.
“The feedback from the 3,000 visitors to our education centres last year was overwhelmingly positive and we would love more schools to take advantage of what we can offer them.”
