Public toilets in Pembrokeshire’s Fishguard, Goodwick and Penblewin have had to close after suffering vandal damage, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
The public conveniences in Fishguard, Goodwick and Penblewin experienced a high level of vandalism over the Christmas period, Pembrokeshire County Council has said.
Several repeat incidences of damage were reported at toilets at Fordd yr Efail, Fishguard, and Goodwick parrog as well as facilities at Penblewin.
Damage included toilet roll holders ripped off walls, soap holders smashed, light holders and bulbs smashed, a baby change unit snapped, essential signage ripped off and doors damaged.
Police have been informed about the damage.
“This situation is so disappointing and frustrating,” said Cllr Cris Tomos, cabinet member for environment, public protection and Welsh language.
“Often after a toilet has been vandalised we have to close the facility temporarily to repair the damage, therefore making it unusable for people who genuinely need to use them.
“We are asking the public to please respect these facilities. Anyone with information about the damage should please contact the police via 101.”
Installing a solid access restriction system is certainly the best approach by local authorities when faced with vandalism, and that’s exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could really put its experience to good work.
Our toilet turnstiles are built from graded stainless steel, for easier cleaning and maintenance, and also come equipped with lockable lids to prevent unwanted access. Furthermore, the separate coin box offers very versatile mounting options, as it can be installed either in front of the turnstile, at the side or alternatively, on the wall, with the cash box at the rear.
The turnstile’s coin mechanism can be programmed for virtually any combination of coins with a secure cash box to hold them, while the additional counters for the number of entries made will enable a thorough level of control over the system’s operation.
