The Lamlash few who look after loo
Volunteers who have rallied to keep the toilets in Lamlash open after they were shut by North Ayrshire Council have been given a huge thank you.
Now run by Lamlash Improvements, the volunteers operate a rota system to keep the facilities clean. The frequency of this rota had been reduced over the winter, but the usual rota will resume next April in time for Easter 2019.
The improvements group is also in the process of taking ownership of the toilet block, which comes with a small piece of land. However, it has been decided to keep the present building for another year or two before rebuilding, when there is the possibility of using the old gents as a changing room. However, the committee is also open to other ideas.
The group has also asked Arran Youth Foundations to run an art competition to decorate the inside of the building, and hopes to see the designs over the winter.
It has also received more donations of toilet rolls, and other cash donations have met the costs of cleaning materials. Anyone interested in helping with the toilet rota can contact the committee.
North Ayrshire Council and Arran Estates are in discussion about the land the swings are on with a view to taking the sites over.
Some of the happy band of volunteers who take their turn on the rota.
