A environmental campaign is challenging people in the district to save 10 litres of water a day.

Affinity Water's new challenge called 'Save 10 a Day' , has garnered the attention of more than 30,000 people from the area who have looked at the campaign online.

According to the water supplier, people in the district on average use 10 litres a day.

The new campaign is challenging people to find easy ways to save water and so far there has been more than 6,000 requests for free water saving kits.

Local chalk artist, Zoe, from Herts Chalk Walk has been creating drawings around the district to raise awareness of the challenge in order to protect the River Ver and its wildlife.

Some of the drawings include different animals such as birds, insects or fish that live around the chalk stream.

Jake Rigg, director of corporate affairs and communities at Affinity Water, said: "We have had a great response so far, but we have water-saving kits for every household.

"We know that 30,000 local people have gone online and we want parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and other people in the community to join in and clock up those water saving points for any school of their choice.

"For every 50,000 litres a school collectively saves we will donate £1,000."
