Over the past month or so Mark Pollintine has been building an earth closet for the convenience of visitors to our woodland. The good news is that it is now finished and ready for use.
Visitors will need to learn how to use it! This is an earth closet and not a water closet – so EC not WC. This system has been used for centuries and if used properly there are no health or pollution problems – it works on the principle of friendly bacteria breaking down waste.
This project was funded by MSDC and supported by our Mid Suffolk Councillor, Rachel Eburn, who made funds available through her locality budget. The provision of an on-site toilet will be particularly welcome to organizers of events in the woodland, who previously had to import portaloos.
Rachel has agreed to perform the grand opening ceremony at 11.00 am on Sunday March 17th, so you are welcome to come along, maybe use the facility and have a chat to other woodland visitors.
