Drinking water fountain installed at Big Park in Peacehaven

Water fountain at Centenary Park

Lewes District Council has recently installed a drinking water fountain for users of the Big Park in Peacehaven, thanks to a grant of over £2,000 from the Children’s Health Fund who are allocating the money raised from the sugar drinks levy.

Councillor Andy Smith, Leader of Lewes District Council and Chair of the Big Parks Project Board said: “We are thrilled to be awarded the funds after a successful application. It has enabled us to install a water fountain at the south side of the award winning Gateway café. Children and adults can have a free healthy alternative drink when making the most of all the Big Park has to offer.”

Gloria Davies-Coates, Children’s Health Fund manager, said “We are delighted to be able to provide access to drinking water for children and young people across the UK. We have already distributed grants totalling £50,000 to 26 projects, covering almost every region of the UK, including Lewes District Council.”
