Help Wanted, Toilets at Chatsworth Road

After much negotiation, Hackney Council has agreed to give us a lease for the public toilets on Brooksby’s Walk (where it becomes Chatsworth Road, next to Sol’s Bike shop).

We expect to sign the papers next week and be in occupation on Thursday 1st December.

So, we need help and volunteers and ideas to bring this valuable convenience back to life.

We have a wonderful plan for the renovations, including transformation of the gents into a fully-functioning events space, public toilets (with disabled access) and solar hot water and electrical panels to cut down on our bills.

If you can spare any time in December, or in the new year, we need your skills and help;  in the immediate future to get the toilets up and running, and following that with our planned renovations.

Builders, plumbers, cleaners, painters and electricians, please email us with any offers of help at or ring Jon on 0797 026 5966.

Events in the Gents

There will be opportunities to run bar/cafe/restaurant in the Gents and we’re looking for people to offer different foods on different days. If you’re interested please get in touch.

Likewise, we’re looking for gallery installations and other events to promote.

Finally they are. We got the lease in February after fighting off plans by the hospital to buy the site and started work in July. So it hasn't taken that long. We plan to open on 20th November, all being well
