I wanted to send my thanks and support to Tina Graham and her petition against the closure of public toilets in the town.
It is not a glamorous issue of course but what should our council tax be for if not to pay for basic public services like this.
The closure of these services, I would suggest, is likely to result in a dirtier, smellier town centre and will be a false economy in the longer term.
Certainly the toilets in Harold Place are not the most beautiful, airy toilets in the world, but they are useful to our community.
Council bigwigs sat in their newly refurbished Muriel Matters House might do well to consider which building is of more municipal use?
