Spend A Penny

Spend A Penny

Falkirk Delivers has partnered with Falkirk Council and initiated a scheme with town centre businesses across the district to provide clean, safe and accessible toilets in the town centre for residents and visitors.  Under the scheme Spend A Penny, participating businesses will allow members of the public to use their toilet facilities free of charge during normal opening hours.  Participating premises will display a poster in their window advertising this service. An example of the poster can be found by clicking here

Councillor Alan Nimmo, spokesperson for Education said:  “Working with Falkirk Delivers we have developed the Spend a Penny comfort scheme where members of the public will have access to additional toilet facilities across many of our town centres.

“The initial response by local businesses has been encouraging and will provide clean, safe and accessible public toilets in convenient locations for residents and visitors and can be easily identified by a sticker displayed in their window. However we’re hopeful that many more businesses will come on board as we’re sure it will increase footfall within the premises already taking part.”

Alex Fleming, BID Manager said:  ‘Whilst shopping in Falkirk town centre and the district towns beyond, look out for the Spend A Penny logo in participating business windows and take advantage of their offerings.’
