Wa­ter­ing of Wok­ing­ham streets

The Wokingham Paper - - VIEWPOINTS - With Jim Bell

Dur­ing the past week, through the en­ergy of a few of our trades­men, a cap­i­tal im­prove­ment has been in­tro­duced in our town: the par­tial wa­ter­ing of our streets. At present the wa­ter-cart only vis­its the Mar­ket­place, and a short dis­tance down the ad­join­ing streets, but when the in­hab­i­tants ex­pe­ri­ence the ben­e­fit de­rived, we shall hope to see the im­prove­ment ex­tended.

One or two pre­vi­ous at­tempts in for­mer years have failed, the more credit is due to those who have suc­cess­fully started the project new, and when it is seen that where all com­bine how small an in­di­vid­ual weekly sub­scrip­tion is re­quired to con­tinue this present plan, it surely will not be dis­con­tin­ued, es­pe­cially dur­ing the present dry and dusty sum­mer.

Some com­plain that the sup­ply of wa­ter is rather scanty, but they must bear in mind that the sup­ply is in ex­act pro­por­tion to the sub­scrip­tion, and an in­crease in the lat­ter item will at once se­cure an in­crease in the for­mer.
