NEW THIS YEAR - the flaskfill scheme. Developed by John Spencer, this is a flask that can be filled with water, or hot drinks. We are looking at bringing businesses on board so that if they display the flask fill sign, a homeless person with the special flask can go into to ask for it to be filled.
