Village public toilets takeover secures future

St Keverne Parish Council has taken over control of the village’s public toilets as of Monday.

Speaking at last week’s meeting of members, council chairman Russell Peters thanked councillor Bill Frisken and clerk Grace Hatton for the time they had spent on the takeover.

He said: “It’s in the interests of the parish that we take them on. I don’t see how we can ever survive without public toilets.

“I was born here and live here – it means everything to me and I’m sure to a lot of other people.”

In response Mr Frisken said: “Our chairman Councillor Peters has done a wonderful job in making sure the people of this parish and visitors to this parish will be able to use public toilets in the future.”

He added that the parish would not have to “put their hands in their pockets” to pay for the takeover, due to some clever balancing of the council’s assets.

That's good because most people like a nice useful toilet when visiting an area.

Last year whilst in Mawgan a visitor asked if there were any public loos in the village ,and was horrified when i said no. A lot of visitors come to these little rural villages ,especially walkers and its a shame they have nowhere to go. The Rec Hall has toilets,they could be unlocked and left open for part of the day at least and as they are at the rear of the building the main hall could be kept locked.
