The 'toilet bike' will be passing through Newton Stewart.

Have your say

To raise awareness of the importance of good toilet facilities to curbing life threatening diseases throughout the world, the Scouts from Castle Douglas have built a travelling toilet which will be making its way through mid Galloway next weekend - powered by young legs.

Along the way they will be collecting money to help fund the building of pit latrines in Kenya. The bike cum toilet will be in Newton Stewart around lunchtime on Friday 6th June on its way to Castle Douglas via New Galloway. The following day, the Scouts will pedal it onto Kirkcudbright. If you see the toilet on its travels, please give them a wave or a toot, and drop some money into the collecting tins.
