To quell the rumours: I can advise that the public toilets at Gyllyngvase Beach are closed as there is an issue with the drainage system off-site. We are in the hands of South West Water to repair that, before the facility can be re-opened. To be clear there is no other reason for the closure.
The nearby facilities at Castle Beach and Swanpool Beach are open as normal.
I noted that the toilets at Truro have been temporarily closed due to unacceptable user behaviour towards cleaning staff. Our staff in Falmouth do a tremendous job and I am very thankful that they have kept our facilities opened, clean and safe for us to use through this last year. Physical or verbal abuse is completely unacceptable, but unfortunately has been experienced by our staff too. I would ask that everyone behaves properly and respectfully whilst using our facilities and interacting with our staff.
