The Lam­lash few who look af­ter loo

The Arran Banner - - News -

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.
