Audio: county council initiative as drought hits county

WITH West Sussex now officially in a state of drought, a decision by the county council will help with the problem.

It’s joined the Aquafund Shared Saving Scheme, which will help to save water and reduce the bill for what is used.

Plus it will help a charity.

Cabinet Member Michael Brown, who is in charge of the West Sussex purse strings, says he’s delighted that over five years it’s a significant saving.

He chats to Chris Rider, the county council’s broadcast media relations manager.
