Renovation of ladies, gents and easy access toilets in the Barbour Institute to provide up to date, energy efficient facilities.

Tattenhall Fundraising stage

pledged of £27,014
days left

The Barbour Institute in Tattenhall is a Victorian building which serves as the village hall. It has recently been repaired and redecorated outside, and the inside spaces are well maintained. The toilets in the Barbour Institute, however, are utilitarian, bare and unwelcoming. The lighting is poor and the hand dryers are inadequate meaning that paper towels have to be supplied. On many occasions, lights are left on after people leave the building and taps have been left running overnight. Installing energy efficient lighting and time delay taps will reduce costs while new sanitary ware will make the toilets - ladies, gents and easy access, easier to clean and more hygenic.

What we'll deliver:

  • Remove and replace all sanitary ware including new basins, close coupled toilets and urninals
  • Install a vanity unit in the Ladies with sufficient space to put down handbags/phones/make up .
  • Install wet wall in cubicles and behind urinals for easy cleaning.
  • Install modern hand dryers in all toilets.
  • Install PIR lighting to improve energy efficiency.
  • Replace old taps with non concussive mixer taps (time delay)

Why it's a great idea:

The building is used for all kinds of events: weddings, parties, yoga, meetings and amateur dramatics. The toilets are cold and unwelcoming at present with poor lighting, inefficient hand dryers and an old worn out floor. Renovating them will make them more energy efficient with PIR lighting and modern hand dryers. New flooring and sanitary wear will improve the facilities for all users and will be of lasting benefit to the community

Steps to get it done:

  • Engaging contractors
  • Delivering project on time and within budget
