Public toilets, Bowns Hill - Winter closing

The public toilets will be closing for Winter at the end of December 2020. They will reopen again at the begining of March 2021.

It is unfortaunate that the toilets have to close for Winter, but this is due to the higher running costs associated with endeavouring to make them Covid safe during the times they are open.
