Council statement on vandalised loos.

A spate of vandalism across many of the city’s new 20 pence in the slot toilets has put them all out of order.

Portaloos in Sydney Gardens. The new 20 pence in the slot toilets have notices saying they are out of action!

Bath Newseum has noted the appearance of port a loos in Parade and Sydney Gardens and wondered what had happened. Thanks to Ian Herve – a regular follower – we now know.

He writes: ‘Hi Richard, All of the loos were vandalised on Thursday night.The containers for the 20ps were jemmied off so making the doors unusable. B&NES locked them all on Friday.

Portaloos inside the entrance to Parade Gardens.

We had a community event in Henrietta Park on Sunday and it cost us to hire portaloos for the event. Ours were vandalsied at the same time.I gather the new doors come from Italy!’

A spokesperson for B&NES told Bath Newseum:

‘The toilets in the following parks are currently not in use after they were vandalised – Royal Victoria Park,  Sydney Gardens, Henrietta Park, Parade Gardens, Monksdale Road (near the Sandpits play area) and the Shallows, Saltford.

We are working with our partner Healthmatic, who is waiting for new parts for the doors to be delivered. Temporary toilets have been provided in Royal Victoria Park, Sydney Gardens, Henrietta Park and Parade Gardens until the doors can be mended, as all toilets in these parks have been affected.’

Meanwhile, it looks like Sainsbury’s are beginning the process of finally replacing the several dead saplings outside their Green Park Station store.

This dead sapling – outside Sainsbury’s – has finally been removed. Hopefully a new tree will take its place?

Walking that way this morning l noticed that several tree guards were now empty and it can be hoped they will soon be replanted.

The scaffolding is coming down – revealing the face of the new City of Bath Apex Hotel.

Outside Green Park Station the scaffolding is starting to come down on the new City of Bath Apex Hotel which is due to be open for business this coming August.

With 177 bedrooms and a sizeable conference area – it’s going to be a major contender in the city’s hotel stakes.
