Chichester Canal Cafe said it is 'delighted' to have signed up as a 'refill station' so people can have their reusable water bottles filled up with tap water.

Ian Milton, trust chairman said: "We are delighted to be playing our part in reducing avoidable single use plastics by signing up as a refill station.

"We are making the changes ourselves too, for example customers are encouraged to bring their own cups for hot drinks and our straws are paper.

"Whether you're walking along the towpath, enjoying one of our scheduled boat trips or hiring a rowing boat, pop into the Canal Cafe where we'll be please to refill reusable water bottles with tap water for free."
