The ‘Smarter Drop Shop’ is part of the company’s campaign which looks to save local people £120 a year on average using water-saving gadgets.

Anglian Water staff will offer water saving hacks, competitions, activities and games in the shop at 97 High Street until January 31.

Emma Staples of Anglian Water said: “We know that consumers are interested in the idea of saving water and are motivated by its potential to reduce household expenses.

“However, it was important for us to help residents move from a place of interest to one of action and we think the face to face opportunity facilitated by our presence on the high street will be a key inspirer.

“The shop will also help us to better explain and showcase some really clever, new water saving tools which residents can be the first to try and start using today.”
