On the Bude & Beyond Facebook page, Bude’s toilets have once again been under discussion.
Siân Brand, a regular visitor to the town said: “We’ve been visiting Bude every summer for almost 20 years and I’m pretty sure that Crooklets has had virtually nothing done to improve those facilities in all that time. Summerleaze has been luckier though. These are the basics that bring tourists back to keep Bude successful and the money coming in. If families can’t look after their children safely and adults can’t access facilities easily, it’s simple, they won’t come back. Please, please invest in some improvements. We will repay you back fourfold or more in our loyalty to Bude!”
Local Nikki Sly said: “I no longer shop in Bude because of the lack of public toilets. And I know of several people who feel the same” while regular visitor Adam Richard added: ” It’s been a problem for some time, that and the eye-watering parking charges”.
The comments were in response to a Bude & Stratton Post article about some of the toilets being closed on Boxing Day. Comments welcome.
