A new composting toilet has been installed at St Nicholas’ Church in Combe Raleigh.

Village minister, the Reverend Jane Lankester, officially opened the toilet after the morning service last Sunday (November 20).

Rosemary Mapleston, churchwarden at St Nicholas’, said: “When the church was built over 600 years ago, the provision of a toilet was probably the last thing the villagers would have thought of. But when, in the Parish Plan of 2010, the provision of a church toilet was felt to be highly desirable, the proposal was unanimously accepted.”

Although the village had organised some fundraising events to pay for the toilet, the major contributor was Viridor Credits, which provided a grant of more than £6,000.
