A POST on Littleton Village Community’s Facebook Page is reminding recreation ground users that the hall toilets are for hall hirers only. The post reads: “Hall hirers pay an hourly rate for private use of the building, so if the doors are unlocked that is because the building is being used for a private event.

“The toilets are not public toilets and do not serve the recreation ground. Hall hirers are key holders and if we are unaware of who is in the building you risk being locked in the bathroom.

“There are now signs on the hall doors explaining this, however the toilets are still being used by recreation ground users.”
