Ba­sic needs

The Arran Banner - - Letters -

Sir, Some time ago, the Ar­ran

Ban­ner pro­duced the pub­li­ca­tion of an un­for­get­table let­ter from a young girl ex­press­ing her dis­gust at the con­di­tion of the pub­lic toi­let she used. I have sel­dom felt so sad and ashamed of my gen­er­a­tion at be­ing in charge of al­low­ing hy­gienic con­di­tions to sink to such a low level dur­ing the 21st cen­tury. Of course I have ex­pe­ri­enced the feel­ing in Glas­gow.

On my re­cent visit, I had to em­bar­rass­ingly use the Brod­ick toi­let. I washed my hands else­where. The San­nox toi­lets were pad­locked. Then, so thank­ful for the ex­cel­lent Ar­ran Ac­tive toi­let.

Now my ma­jor point – which has been given ini­tial lo­cal thought. The qual­ity of the pro­posed fu­ture toi­lets. We have a golden op­por­tu­nity to con­struct first-class mod­ern toi­lets. A small sub-com­mit­tee of qual­i­fied peo­ple could be given the task of ob­tain­ing suit­able plans for spa­cious and at­trac­tive qual­ity mod­ern toi­lets. The toi­lets at Asda, Ar­drossan are a fine ex­am­ple of clean, qual­ity, mod­ern con­ve­niences. Asda of­ten win awards on this score. The sub-com­mit­tee could meet with the right peo­ple and ob­tain the foun­da­tion of good thought and con­struc­tion. It would be dread­ful to con­tinue with the likes of the Brod­ick toi­lets.

I know very lit­tle de­tails of the ex­cel­lent work be­ing done by the var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ties but I hope the con­tin­ued in­ter­est of Ar­ran vis­i­tors pro­duces fur­ther let­ters or cash, to sup­port one of the ba­sic needs of hu­man­ity.
