New water refill points installed on the Angelsey coast

Angelsey County Council and Natural Resources Wales have installed two new water refill points at locations along the Angelsey Coast Park, at Newborough Forest and Holyhead Breakwater Country Park.

The taps are fed with water from the nearby Llyn Alaw reservoir and have been added to the Refill app, which now features over 20,000 locations in Britain where water bottles can be refilled for free.

Water points are located near the toilet block at Newborough and outside the toilet block and cafe at Holyhead Breakwater.

The North Wales Chronicle reported Project officer, Alun M Owen, said: “As well as our successful partnership with NRW, further funding has been secured via Welsh Government to extend the project within communities linked to the coastal path.

“Meetings are underway with Town and Community Councils to install water dispensers at strategic locations combined with information boards to highlight the benefits of drinking local tap water and encourage the use of refillable bottles. All new sites will be added to the Refill App ‘put your tap on the map’.”
