The hose pipe ban and patients with disabilities

Many of my patients suffering skeletal problems are concerned about the hose pipe ban and how it will affect their ability to manage their gardens
 
In our area information can be obtained from the Anglia Water website, www.angliawater.co.uk 
They state:- 'People who hold a current Blue Badge issued by their local authority can use a hosepipe to water a garden attached to domestic premises in order to water plants and water their own allotment if applicable.'
 
They do stress that a degree of common sense should apply. I suggest that if you suffer back neck and skeletal problems, and have a blue badge, it is reasonable to use a hose pipe to distribute the amount of water you would carry in containers if you were physically fit. Using a sprinkler on your lawn just because you have a blue badge is, I would suggest, not what is intended
