Imagine heading into Kingston for the day – maybe shopping and some lunch – and knowing that there is no toilet facility that you can use at all. Would you still go out?
On Tuesday this week, two of our steering group members (Sam and Penny) met up with Ed Davey MP for Kingston and Surbiton and Martin Jackaman from the Changing Places Toilets campaign group at Portcullis House in Westminster to discuss how we can progress getting Changing Places Toilet facilities installed in Kingston Town Centre.
