Q: At present the local water companies in East Berks. have only issued a ban on domestic hose pipe use. There is no clarity about whether this includes recreational use of hose pipes on cricket grounds and cricket squares in particular. Will the ECB establish what the general ruling is, please. This question was raised at a recent East Berks District Development Group meeting, the cricket club members of which are served by three different water companies.

A: This is something we're looking at centrally, with regards to both international/first class grounds and recreational too. But your local water board officials should be able to provide clarity on how far the ban extends.
