It’s easy to take the everyday things for granted, particularly the things that we are used to accessing in our homes, such as electricity, gas and water. How many times a day do you turn on a tap and expect water to pour out? And, more importantly, what would you do if it didn’t?

Water, may seem like an everyday need that we have in abundance, and after last year’s wet summer we certainly do. But that doesn’t mean it will always be the case, it was only 12 months ago that much of the UK was facing hosepipe bans and water use restrictions.

This only serves to highlight how precious our water is as a resource and why everyone needs to be aware of the need to use it wisely and look after it. Nowhere is water use and water conservation more important than on farms. Water is a vital resource for producing food of all types, from milk to melons and beef to bread.
