So it has become necessary to erect posters in Boston to discourage the admittedly disagreeable habit of public urination. Not so very long ago, Boston Borough Council sold off the Assembly Rooms which contained the town centre’s main public toilets, without taking steps to safeguard their continued availability.
Am I alone in wondering whether there might be a link between the two events?
Nature will still call, regardless of the availability of toilets, especially for the elderly, the very young and those with long-term health conditions. Boston Borough Council would do well to replace the lost amenities with decent, attended, facilities close to the town centre.
Few people would object to paying twenty pence for the use of such facilities and they would soon pay for themselves.
