Hawkinge parish councillors agreed last night (12 July) at their monthly meeting to pay for the rental of a portable toilet which will sited on the Hawkinge football ground before the first match of the season.

The match o­n the Hawkinge pitch is scheduled for 8 August.

Cllr Trice  had proposed that the council buy o­ne but Cllr Smith pointed out that there needed to be a maintenance agreement and insurance,  without which the council could find themselves facing possible claims.

Councillors agreed to a short term rental of a portable toilet which would include the maintenance and insurance and they would look into the feasibility of purchasing o­ne at a later date.

The meeting was told the estimated cost would be approximately £25 a week to rent or £400 to buy.
