Town now has six places to 'go'

Don't forget that there are now SIX official sets of toilets available for public use in Boston town centre.

The idea for a community toilet scheme was hatched by the Prosperous Boston Task and Finish Group. The team of councillors has been gathering evidence and investigating proposals to help make Boston a better place to live, visit, shop and do business in. Their final report, with recommendations, is expected towards the end of this year.

Their community toilet project was an early suggestion taken up by Boston Town Area Committee (BTAC) and the number of toilets in the town centre available to the public has now doubled from three to six.

Chairman of the Prosperous Boston Group, Cllr Judith Skinner, said: "We consulted on this and took note of what people had to tell us about the availability of toilets in the town centre. It was clear that quick action was desired and I thank the officers who acted swiftly in sourcing the information required to facilitate such a scheme.  It is gratifying to now see that BTAC took the idea, ran with it and, with the assistance of three business, have made it work."

In addition to the three public toilets at the Cattle Market, Central Park and Lincoln Lane the public can now also use toilets at Oldrids (9am to 5.30pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 4pm Sunday), St Botolph's Church (the Stump) (every day from 8.30am to 4pm ) and the new Waterfall Plaza shopping centre (9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday).
