Dark Lane Toilets - Evening Closure
This is extremely disappointing news but due to continued acts of vandalism, and general antisocial behavior, the Town Council have decided to close these facilities, for a trial period of two months, from 5:30pm 7 days per week.
It is regrettable that these facilities have to be closed, however we are looking at ways of preventing the vandalism and hoping that this closure will be a temporary measure.
