Public toilets in Salterforth have been re-opened following a long campaign by local residents, a recent news report in the local media has been able to find.
"We’ve officially re-opened the toilets," said Jeff Tipler, chairman of the Salterforth Toilet Group, which was formed with the sole purpose of reopening the toilets. "We’re back up and running, which is a little bit unique. Normally when a toilet block closes in Pendle, it doesn’t open again."
"It’s been over 12 months ago since cutbacks forced the local council to close the Salterforth village toilets," he said. "Things have changed now and the village toilets were re-opened just in time for Salterforth Fun Day."
Although the Salterforth Toilet Group raised £850 themselves, significant funding is still needed to guarantee the future running and maintenance costs.
The toilet group received a big boost when the West Craven Area Committee recently awarded the group £750 towards the toilet’s upkeep and maintenance costs.
Implementing an access restriction system and charging a small fee for access would certainly help towards meeting those costs and this is exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could really puts 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.
