Allotments Get a New Environmentally-Friendly Loo

Thanks to a grant form the Big Lottery Fund, Wharfland Allotments in Acocks Green have installed the first toilet on the site in it’s 110 year existence.

The odourless eco-friendly toilet uses no water or electricity,  is solar powered and produces useful compost from waste.

Allotment Holders are proud of their new loo.

Stephen Cox, the Treasurer of South Yardley Allotments Society who manage the site, said

“ It’s been a long wait but now the many ladies and families who rent plots have the convenience of a toilet on site. It has disabled access too, opening the site to the whole community for Open Days in the future, allowing us to offer plots to local schools and care homes.”

South Yardley Allotments Society manages two sites – Clay Lane and Wharfland and can be contacted via their website www.southyardleyallotments.btck.co.uk.If you are interested in renting one of the available plots find out more by visiting their website.
