A NEW modern and easily accessible public toilet has been formally opened in Earl Shilton, near Hinckley, after the town has been without one for “well over a decade”.

The public toilet is located in the foyer of the Wood Street Public Library, and it is open six days a week, from Monday to Saturday, from the early morning to early evening.

The essential amenity, which will benefit town visitors, shoppers, and residents, has been restored largely in part due to the ‘unwavering efforts’ of Mrs. Janice Richards, a former borough and county councillor, who is now a County Honorary Alderman.

Mrs. Richards formally opened the facility alongside County Council Chairman Dr. Kevin Feltham, County Councillor Coun. Mrs Pam Posnett MBE, Hinckley and Bosworth Deputy Mayor Scott Gibbens, and Earl Shilton Town Council Chairman Richard Allen.

It was able to officially open after the town, borough, and county councils all joined forces and worked together to ensure one would be put in place once again.
