The unit will be cleaned and checked throughout the day, but if it is need of attention people can call the parish council on 01903 786420 – or 07752 493539 in an emergency.

The opening comes after Rustington Parish Council won two platinum and one gold Loo of the Year awards in last year’s search for the best ‘away from home’ toilets in the UK. The village’s entries were in the Public Toilets (Non-Attended) category.

All three units were also awarded Washroom Cleaner of the Year certificates.
