Edd good question , the A - associations has mains water and 3 tapes for the whole site plus 2 very long  

hosepipes on trollies and you can buy water at £3 per filled cube which is very reasonable as they hold 1000 litres 

I also has water butts the other side of the shed which fills via the shed guttering
