IF the chief executive of Scarborough Borough Council accompanied by his environmental/health and safety officers, preferably taking their wives with them, were to visit the loos at the top car park of the Robin Hood’s Bay tourist honeypot, they would encounter a ghastly, decrepit public convenience.
The adjacent car park has, possibly, one of the highest revenue streams in the county.
Invest it in our and the public interest – a facility that is used by all citizens from birth to death.
The RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr has 250,000-plus visitors a year. The National Trust has 400,000 at Fountains Abbey. Both offer decent facilities. No excuses – just get the improvements made by next spring!

IF Welcome to Yorkshire wants to endear itself to the region, why does it not become a public service champion?
The state of some public conveniences in the region is a disgrace.
First impressions count and it should be using its influence with councils – if it has any left – to press for improvements and investment.
