A warm welcome for Lottie Loo

On Saturday the 12th of March Tattenhall Allotments Association held a grand opening event for their new compostable toilet. 

Named appropriately as ‘Lottie Loo’ was given the royal treatment on the day. Jim Harris (expert grower) and Martin Chalk (Chair) led the proceedings. Jim cut the ribbon with garden shears and said “I feel honoured to be asked by the committee to open the loo”. Martin Chalk commented, “I don’t think I’ve ever toasted a toilet with bubbly before!” A gold plaque marking the occasion was then fixed to Lottie, kindly donated by Mike Foster (Secretary).

The committee provided prosecco, bucks fizz, tea, coffee and fairy cakes for everyone to enjoy.

With generous donations given by members and friends the committee was able to purchase the toilet. Now allowing members young and old to use the facility and not have to worry about leaving the allotments too soon. The loo will also likely prove helpful during future social events.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible.
