Public loos put town to shame

A SHAME on Eastbourne is the state of the Victorian public conveniences - as examples those at the Wish Tower, the Redoubt, Fisherman’s Green, Green Street and Hampden Park are dismal, grim and far below any acceptable modern standards, despite the heroic efforts of cleaners.

Can anyone think of any town in Europe, East or West, where public lavatories are as antiquated and unsuitable? Yet we fear to complain for risk of permanent closures without replacements; for examples as at North Street, Meads Road and Helen Gardens.

There should be a survey of all public conveniences and a programme for improvements and replacements.
