Nappy changing facilities introduced for Godalming dads

No more excuses from Godalming and Farncombe dads...

Nappy changing facilities in public toilets have been introduced by Godalming Town Councillors.

After taking over as management, they discovered that there were no baby changing facilities in any of the public toilets in the town...

Godalming Town Councillors decided not only to provide these facilities, but to ensure that nappy changing would be an equal opportunity activity.

As a father of a young baby, Councillor Richard Wainwright said:

Many fathers take paternity leave to look after the children and many of them are out and about with the kids...so not being able to gain access to sanitary services while they're out is very challenging.

"The town council took on management of the public toilets just 2 months ago.

"In many respects, the toilets hadn't had any investments for almost 20 years, even the washers and dryers were 20 years old. 

"I’m very pleased that Godalming Town Council have recognised that fathers also need access to hygienic baby changing facilities and have acted to correct this lack of provision in our public facilities."
