Newbiggin by the Sea was one of six coastal communities in the UK to be successful in securing a grant from Sea Changer's Coastal Fountain Fund in 2023. The purpose of the fund is to reduce the impact of single-use plastic water bottles on coastal habitats by funding communities to purchase water drinking fountains and install them for use by the public in busy or environmentally important areas.
Funding was also provided to support the project by Newbiggin Heritage Partnership, Scottish Power Renewables, and Newbiggin by the Sea Town Council.
The refill unit features a bottle refill station, an accessible bubbler, and a ground level dog fountain.
The unit is managed and maintained by the town council and we conduct regular cleansing and sanitising of the unit.
The unit is located on the promenade near The Coble and near the finish line for Newbiggin by the Sea Parkrun.
