Things to do

At the centre, your class can go on a tour of our water treatment centre to find out how we supply water to their taps.

They can go river or pond dipping to try and spot wildlife, as well as walking around our reservoir to explore the natural beauty of the site.

They can also take part in a den-building activity, which can help improve their team-building and problem-solving skills.
