Cobham is a delightful village in the county of Surrey with a very rural feel even though it is only 20 miles from London. There is an attractive river frontage by the River Mole, a tributary of the Thames, which almost encircles Cobham, and provides a distinctly rural atmosphere in some places with views across open countryside.
Tackling plastic waste
Like almost every part of the U.K., Cobham suffers from the blight of convenience based consumerism: litter and plastic waste. Helping make the use of a reusable and refillable water bottle the norm will help tackle plastic waste at source, curb much of the litter and reduce both plastic use and plastic waste.
If you’re looking to start a Refill Scheme, we’ve got a guide to help you get started.

Laurence Wells, as well as the local Refill champion, is a trustee of the Cobham Conservation and Heritage Trust and organises a monthly litter pick.
Refill Cobham is also supported and helped by Elmbridge Borough Council; Martin Watson, chair of the Cobham Chamber of Commerce; fellow trustees of the Cobham Conservation and Heritage Trust; Tricia Bland, an Elmbridge Borough Councillor and lead at Refill Elmbridge.
