Sheep Market toilets renovation continues but won’t be open for Spalding Flower Parade

A town centre toilet block will not be open for Flower Parade as renovation work continues.

Sheep Market toilets in Spalding have been closed for several months while South Holland District Council undertakes renovation work to create modern and accessible Changing Places facilities.

The block, which has been closed for sometime, is being given a make-over as part of a £150,000 project using Government cash to provide more facilities for people with limited mobility, or specific disabilities and care needs.

However, the council says that the work is progressing but the site will not be open when thousands of visitors descend onto the town for the popular Spalding Flower Parade on Saturday, May 11.

Coun Henry Bingham, portfolio holder for assets and strategic planning, said: "We are now entering the final stages of refurbishment and renovation on the Sheep Market toilets and, whilst unfortunately it is not possible for this to be completed in time for the Flower Parade, we are still on schedule for work to be finished and the toilets reopened later this spring as planned and advertised."

The project will include three new toilet facilities, a baby changing room and the introduction of a Changing Places facility designed for people who cannot use standard accessible toilets.
