Hay Town Council has installed two new card payment machines at two of our public convenience sites. Approximately 95,000 people visit Hay's toilets per year, so they play a vital part in people's visit to our town. Councillors decided to install the machines because visitors often don't have the correct change, and this can lead to frustration. And in the current Covid-19 pandemic, the use of cards rather than cash should make our toilets safer for people to use.
Councillor Josie Pearson, Deputy Mayor and Chair of Hay Town Council's Communications Sub Committee, said, "As a result of feedback from the businesses in Hay and tourists, I'm really pleased to say the Council has now installed card payment options on the town's toilets. This will be more convenient and hygienic given the current pandemic situation. We hope that they make a difference to people visiting Hay."
