Watering of Wokingham streets
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.
