Turriff Business Association, which has taken over ownership of the closed facilities from Aberdeenshire Council, finalised the transfer last month and thanks to funding from Aberdeenshire Council’s Formartine Area Budget Town Regeneration Scheme works were carried out to upgrade electrics and hand dryers, as well as make sure that sufficient PPE and supplies for the volunteers who have signed up to care for the facilities are available.

Councillor Anne Stirling cut the ribbon and was joined fellow ward councillors Iain Taylor, Alistair Forsyth and Sandy Duncan along with Kevin Turner representing Tesco who are helping by opening up the toilets each morning.

Work has been carried out to upgrade and refurbish the toilets.

While a small team of volunteers are in place to close the facilities, the association is still keen to enlist more people to add to the rota.

Anyone interested in learning more about getting involved should email turriffbusinessassociation@aol.com, or speak with Marj Chalmers or Rose Logan.

The toilets are open to the public between 7.30am and 6pm, seven days a week, with a 20p charge in place to cover the cost of operation.
