We have installed two new three cubicle toilets in South Ribble. The picture above shows a number of interesting features:- The toilets are clad in sustainable redwood planking- The users can access the toilet with wither a Radar key or coin. They will also be switched to free during events- The portholes are designed to bring more natural light into the building- They are fitted with a "Green" sedum roof, to help blend with the environs
This is part of the upgrade of the whole seafront of Douglas, and the tourist experience has hopefully improved accordingly. The building features a seadum "green" roof, as well as a large information board on the seaside of the toilet.

This year's company adventure weekend took us to South Wales and the mining town of Methyr Tydfil. For the intrepid - pictured here - Debbie designed a course around, up and through Pen-y-Fan that ensured a sound sleep on Saturday night. For the more sound of mind, a trip to the mining museum and a couple of beers during the opening Euro's Wales game was more the plan.42 of the team gathered, and I'm glad to report that although 3 were missing in action at one point, 42 made the retu...

We were always warned that this Car Park comes under a bit of pressure from flooding, but did not anticipate our recently refurbished toilet being overrun in quite such spectacular fashion. This is in St Georges Field, York, and while we positioned Queen Cath aka Canute ( our ebullient leader in York) on the edge of the toilet, she couldn't hold back the waves.
David Cameron has pledged to do more to save Britain's dwindling number of public lavatories. The Prime Minister said he would examine the case for lifting thousands of pounds of taxes from them every year to try to save them from closure.
