Toilet block demolition begins, 14 March 2022

Promptly on the morning of Monday 14 March 2022 Lee Builders began the work of demolishing parts of the toilet block. The men’s block was the first target and work went very quickly. By the end of the afternoon only the pump house was still standing.

Portaloos for public use have been delivered, and the AED Defibrillator was installed outside the safety fence.

The WBRA has been able to keep the iconic wooden signs with sunburst for the archives and a few nearby residents kept a concrete block or two as memorabilia:
