A TOILET block has re-opened after repeated vandalism put the facilities out of action.
The public toilets in the Cremorne Gardens in Ellesmere have been renovated by Friends of the Mere, a voluntary group that takes care of activities at the natural attraction.
Services have been unavailable for several months after repeated vandalism to the block left them unusable.
But a series of grants have ensured essential repairs could be carried out, including the addition of ‘vandal-proof’ doors to prevent future attacks.
David Farncombe, part of Friends of the Mere, said: “They managed to get it open for the Easter holidays which was great as the playground, which has been recently renovated, is extremely popular.
“Before these toilets were re-opened it was 500 metres to the nearest ones at The Boathouse.”
Friends of the Mere hope the recent work will benefit an application to give the gardens a ‘Green Flag’ status, which is only awarded to areas that have a high standard of cleanliness, good management and care for the environment.
