Ely’s toilets used to be award winners – but cleaning and maintenance have been reduced by Tory cuts. For a tourist city, well maintained and signposted public toilets are essential.
East Cambs Tories stopped paying for the council to enter the ‘Good Loo Awards’.
Entering the award helped keep up the standard of our loos, and recognised the service of some of the council’s lowest paid staff doing an unpleasant job.
The council has set up a working party, but this will not report back for months.
Meanwhile Lib Dem Councillors will continue to press for proper maintenance of the toilets and readmission to the awards.Leave a comment
