THE public toilet block in Haworth Central Park will be closed for repair work for about five weeks from October 1.

Councillor David Mahon, chairman of Haworth, Cross Roads and Stanbury Parish Council, informed colleagues of the closure at the parish council’s latest full meeting yesterday evening. (Sept 24)

“Both the men’s and ladies’ toilets will be stripped out and put back together,” he said.

He added that two toilets in the block at the Bronte Parsonage Museum Car Park were currently out of action due to damage.

And he said that when he went to lock up the men’s toilets in the car park on Sunday afternoon (Sept 23) he found them flooded.

However, Cllr Mahon said members of the public were continuing to contribute to the honesty boxes to help pay for the toilets’ ongoing upkeep.

The parish council took over the running of the village’s public loos earlier this year.

Bradford Council, which had paid for the facilities up until this point, had withdrawn its funding due to pressures on its own budget.
