The park toilets will close for the winter on Monday 2nd November.
We don’t like it, we don’t agree with it and we think the park deserves toilets all year – but it is not going to happen.
The Friends of Sandall Park clean the toilets for eight months of the year and pay for the consumables for the entire period. Cafe staff have been helping out by closing the toilets in recent months (a massive thankyou to them.)
The problem in the winter is that council seasonal staff normally open the toilets for us but obviously they are seasonal and are not employed during the winter. Add to this the cost to FoSP for all the consumable items and most people will get the picture.
We are however looking at longer term plans regarding the toilets in the future.
We are sorry for any inconvenience.
