Village staff are thinking ahead

Ashcroft Village staff get kudos for early opening of the public park washrooms.

Dear Editor

While we were out for a walk yesterday, we happened upon some picnickers at Heritage Place Park. We greeted them and carried on, commenting between ourselves that it would be nice if the washrooms were open for people traveling through our village.

Further along the path, we encountered a woman reading the signs and spending time looking at the park. We greeted her and after some small talk, she inquired if the washrooms were open.

As we went to find out, two young women came out of the washroom and went back to their car, continuing on their way.

It was with great pleasure we were able to inform the visitor that the washrooms were open – it made her stay in our village much more relaxing and welcoming.

Many thanks to our hard working and forward thinking Ashcroft Village Staff and Councillors for their foresight in having the washrooms open this early in the season. We appreciate the work you do for us!!!

Jim Duncan and Martina Baier
