In answer to the letter in today’s Whitby Gazette about how good our toilets are here, I totally disagree with it.
I have lived here over 18 years and use one or the other of these toilets every day.
The Shambles are often dirty, smell and the handwashing machines are very unhealthy, often with no soap in them.
The Khyber Pass ones - well I have never ever found a speck of soap there and not always hot water, but I have seen hygiene notices in there about how handwashing is so important.
The ones on the West Cliff are just passable.
None of these toilets are adequate at all, speaking from experience.
