I was pleased to read in the November 13, edition of the Gazette, that a real wow-factor for Alnwick public toilets had been unaffordable and then reassured to read that the available money had been spent on deep-cleaning, drains and ventilation.
I was horrified that anyone might have considered spending money to produce a wow-factor had funds been available.
I believe the essence of a public convenience is cleanliness and functionality.
Daily maintenance and regular emptying of bins will be more important than style.
