The Chalice Well Trust Joins BBWP

◄ ◄ Return to Press Office

The latest member to join British Bottled Water Producers (BBWP) is The Chalice Well Trust – a  charitable trust with a special interest in spring water.

Natasha Wardle Projects and Development Manager for The Chalice Well Trust says:  “For over 50 years, The Chalice Well Trust has existed as a charitable trust whose aim is to safeguard and protect an ancient natural spring known as The Chalice Well at the foot of Glastonbury Tor in Somerset.  A world-renowned heritage site; over 40,000 visitors come each year to drink the water.” It is important to promote and celebrate such organisations which make available water whose properties, in some instances such as this one, have been recognised for centuries.

The Chalice Well is among the best known holy wells in Britain. Many legends are attributed to its chalybeate waters, which flow ceaselessly at a steady rate and temperature that never varies.
For many visitors to the site, being at the well head where the water can be drunk, in the surroundings of the attractive gardens can be a truly inspirational experience. 

In order to safeguard the site, The Chalice Well Trust was established in 1959 by Wellesley Tudor Pole to enable visitors and pilgrims to receive inspiration and refreshment from the waters and gardens. The well-head cover (pictured) Well Head cover was designed by Frederick Bligh Bond and installed at a special ceremony in 1919. Recently the site was awarded a Silver medal for Green Tourism by The Green Tourism Business Scheme. 

Jo Jacobius, Director of BBWP, said: “I’m delighted to welcome The Chalice Well Trust. For anyone who expresses the view that natural and spring waters are a modern gimmick, this ancient place, centred on the holy well, is likely to change that opinion. We represent a range of different companies and organisations and it is a real pleasure to welcome such an interesting and historical organisation to our membership body.”

The trend towards healthy eating and drinking means that more people are buying bottled water. We're mostly made of water. Water is life-giving and vital.

In the UK we now buy more than 2 billion litres a year. As we consume more water many people naturally want to know that the water they drink is free from unwanted additives; they want to identify the source of the water; and more and more Britons want to avoid unnecessary ‘food miles’.
