Visitor’s first impression of Rye is going down the pan

ARRIVING in Rye yesterday, I was immediately disgusted by the state of the public toilets opposite to the station.

What a greeting! They stank of urine and were plainly long-neglected.

As an historic town, largely dependent on tourism, you need people to spend generously in your town.

You might allow them to ‘spend a penny’ with dignity, in a clean environment.

A recent visit to Sandwich left us chuckling with delight at the conveniences located in the car park.

Manned, modern, clean and pretty, at 20p a visit they have been a talking point when recalling our visit to the town.

Visitors and residents in Rye deserve something just as memorable!
