Wind­fall from wa­ter com­pany

Aldershot News & Mail - - SCHOOLS -

HANDY new taps are help­ing chil­dren at a Fleet pre-school stay hy­gienic thanks to South East Wa­ter’s Com­mu­nity Chest Fund.

An­cells Farm Com­mu­nity Pre-School ap­plied for a £640.80 grant from the wa­ter com­pany for two por­ta­ble sinks so the chil­dren, aged four and un­der, can wash their hands hy­gien­i­cally af­ter snack and play time.

As the school shares the com­mu­nity cen­tre, the por­ta­ble fa­cil­i­ties are an ideal pack-away re­place­ment for adult sinks.

The pre-school’s Har­sha Bho­haita said: “We are very grate­ful to South East Wa­ter for the gen­er­ous award. Be­fore, the chil­dren would have to stand on a step to reach the sink while another reached the pump-ac­tion tap. They love the new por­ta­ble sinks as they can eas­ily and hy­gien­i­cally wash their hands at snack time and af­ter sand and mud play, be­fore we pack them away neatly.”

South East Wa­ter’s Ge­off God­bold, Har­sha Bho­haita and chil­dren from An­cells Farm Pre-School, show off the new por­ta­ble sinks.
