THE PUBLIC toilets in Brae could be set for a new lease of life as the community looks to bring them back into use.

The hope is for the toilets at Skelladale to be upgraded and re-opened in time for this year’s Come To Brae Days event in July.

The building has been off limits since Shetland Islands Council closed the facility in 2013, with the nearest public toilets located in Voe.

The team behind the annual Come To Brae Days community event is part of a group looking to re-open the toilets, and they are keen to hear from anyone who is interested in helping out.

This could be through painting and decorating, cleaning and being part of a rota to check and close the building in the evening, for example.

Come to Brae Days’ Danny Peterson said: “Come to Brae Days is supporting a very proactive and passionate group of local residents who are very keen the facility becomes available again for the public.

“If anyone thinks they have any time or expertise to offer, we would be delighted to hear from you through the Come to Brae Days Facebook page.”
