VIDEO: Councillor lobbies public in Assembly Rooms loos campaign

A BOSTON councillor is hoping to help keep the Assembly Rooms toilets open when the building is sold.

Councillor Carol Taylor has been outside the toilets this morning (Wednesday) counting how many people use the loos on a busy market day and speaking to people about how the possible closure will affect them.

She said if the toilets close the effect will be felt worse when construction on the Haven Bridge begins next year and said she hoped the new owners would see the benefits of keeping the toilets open, even if they charge 20p a use.

The building has been sold subject to contracts and the potential buyer has been kept a mystery by council bosses.

In the video Coun Taylor tells the Standard of her findings so far.
