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.
