Praise has been flooding in for public toilets which the Turriff community battled to keep open.

After a number of years of fighting to keep both the High Street and Haughs public conveniences open, the volunteer group who now maintain the High Street facility say that they have been awash with positive feedback from facility users.

Unsurprisingly the toilets have proven popular, welcoming more than 300 visitors each week as restrictions ease and more than 100 visitors weekly during the strictest restrictions.

The toilets were opened by Turriff Business Association and local volunteers last year, and chairperson Marj Chalmers said: "We haven't had any issues, and we have had a lot of people complimenting us on how well looked after the toilets are.

"The numbers speak for themselves, these facilities are clearly very important for visitors to the town centre.

"We are grateful to the staff from Tesco who open the toilets each morning and the volunteers who do a great job."

With the operation now established, Turriff Business Association are now looking for more volunteers to join their existing team.

At present volunteers are engaged for around half an hour once a week to check and close the toilets, but this could become less frequent with more volunteers.
