A facility supported by the Spaldington Airfield Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund has officially opened.

A compostable toilet has been installed by Foggathorpe Parish Council at a cost of £1,650.

The new facility will support the Friends of Foggathorpe Meadow who spend Saturday mornings carrying out work and encouraging residents to drop in.

The meadow is leased from East Riding of Yorkshire Council by the parish council who are working with residents to turn it into an amenity space.

As there is no power supply, water supply or sewer on site a conventional toilet is not an option so the new facility is ideal for the rural setting.

Councillor Aitken said: “The new compostable toilet will support the work of local people to create a space for public events. It was also one of the more interesting ribbon cutting events I have been involved with.”

The fund is now closed until the next contribution is received from Falck Renewables UK Limited, which is anticipated in January 2019.
