Roberttown is a semi rural village in West Yorkshire with good links to nearby towns and cities as well as lovely countryside. It was famous for the Luddite movement, and Robin Hood is said to be buried nearby. It is a friendly village and local businesses are welcoming Refill and other ways to do their bit for the environment.
Reducing single-use plastic
Villagers are keen to do their bit to reduce the consumption of single use plastic. Refill Roberttown will help people doing their shopping and passers by, including walkers who are out enjoying the beautiful nearby countryside.
If you’re looking to start a Refill Scheme, we’ve got a guide to help you get started.
A team effort
There are currently 10 businesses signed up to the scheme, from pubs and cafes to gift shops and beauty salons. Virtually the whole village has signed up to Refill Roberttown. There are many local events in the village, so people can take advantage of the free tap water nearby.
Refill Roberttown is also supported by Roberttown, Norristhorpe and Hartshead Matters.
To find out more or how to get involved, you can email Molly, the local champion.
