The Public Toilets in Gargrave faced closure on the 31st December so a new Community Group, GNAT: Gargrave Needs A Toilet, has been set up to keep the toilets open.
Many Pennine Way walkers will have welcomed the sight of a public toilet on their travels.
A group of residents has volunteered to open, close and clean the toilets but money is needed to pay for water and consumables and to support the long term future of the facilities.
The group is determined to keep the toilets open, and have founded a Go Fund Me page to raise money for the cause https://www.gofundme.com/f/gnat-gargrave-needs-a-toilet
Gargrave is an iconic stopping off point on the Pennine Way with the well-loved Dalesman Café providing welcome sustenance to weary walkers.
You can help the cause by making a donation to keep the toilets open for walkers, cyclists, motorists and bus passengers who pass through the village.
