The Big Stink

In August 2016 as part of the Big History Project created by Water Aid,S.I Northwich members researched the history of drinking water and sanitation in Northwich, and how it transformed lives.We held an interactive exhibition in the Weaver Hall Museum,aimed at young and old alike. Some children dressed up in Victorian clothes,and learned about the appalling sanitary conditions in those days.The many visitors, included our Regional President,Jean Pentecost, and the Mayor of Northwich, Kevin Rimmer,who has recommended that the display be made available to local Primary

It also linked in with our ongoing ‘Toilet twinning ‘ project, whereby we sponsor toilets in Africa Following on from this success, Penny Clarke and Louise Parry took the exhibition to a village event at the Tiger’s Head Norley,where, on a very wet day, they manned the stall all day.Again there was considerable interest
