The 18 locales that AquAid Swindon service and supply water coolers to are chock full of interesting perhaps lesser known information:

Burberry originated in Basingstoke.  The 160 year-old global fashion brand with a distinctly British attitude was the brainchild of a Basingstoke man. Thomas Burberry was an apprentice draper from Basingstoke, who at the tender age of 21 established a process for waterproofing yarn and cloth after a chance conversation with a shepherd. Recognising that the shepherd’s clothing had seemingly become waterproof through contact with lanolin, Thomas Burberry invented a breathable waterproof fabric for outdoor clothes. The first Burberry store opened in Basingstoke on Winchester Street in 1856 and the rest, as they say, is history.*

You’ll find the longest flight of locks on Britain’s waterways is to be found near Devizes. The 29-lock stretch on two miles of the Kennet and Avon Canal climbs 230 foot high Caen Hill, and was understandably the last part of that project to be completed. It takes an experienced user a good five hours to pass through the system designed by the great canal engineer John Rennie.*

Paddington Bear owes a lot to Newbury. We all know that Paddington Bear arrived in Britain from Peru but the author, Michael Bond, was born in Newbury back in 1926.*

Whether you’re based in Chippenham, Marlborough or Thatcham, AquAid Swindon are more than equipped to meet all of your water cooler and water related product requirements.  Contact one of their friendly team today.

Interesting information about the areas that AquAid South West covers which you may not have been aware of:

Taunton was the first town in the country to be lit permanently by electric street lighting in 1881. This was 12 months before the Electric Lighting Act of 1882 which enforced the switch from oil lamps to electric across the UK.*

Exmoor ponies are believed to have inhabited the moors for tens of thousands of years. There have been fossil remains found in the area that dates them back to 50,000 BC and there are some that claim they have been present there since the Ice Age.

There is also a record of ponies on Exmoor in the Domesday Book of 1086*. Now that’s a bit of staying power right there! Wonder if it had anything to do with the water they drank?

The Day Pelé Came to Plymouth – In 1973 the city’s local football team, Plymouth Argyle, hosted a friendly match against Brazilian side Santos FC, one of the best clubs in the world at the time. Their line-up featured world-renowned player, Pelé. And despite the superstar scoring a penalty, shockingly it was Plymouth Argyle who won.

The Willow Man that can be seen running across a field by the M5 at Bridgwater is made of Somerset willow and is the creation of Serena de la Hey. Built in 2000, it’s known as the ‘Angel of the South’, standing over 40 feet tall. It is there to celebrate how willow has helped to shape the landscape on the Somerset Levels.

More than being a water cooler supplier though, AquAid has, since our inception, had a strongly rooted ethos about helping those less fortunate. We do this through the support of ‘water’ based charities that provide sustainable solutions to Third World countries globally, but with a focus on countries in Africa.

AquAid mainly support two charities, being Christian Aid and since 2010, The Africa Trust. Since AquAid’s humble beginnings in 1992, we have, to date, donated more than £12 million to charity and assisted more than 2,4 million people.
