RETRO Roamer

More tales from the end of the 1980s

You’ll recall I was complimentary about the speedy way the new town toilets were made ready in Station Square. But there was a hiccup because the ‘communal urinal’, in all its stainless steel glory, wasn’t delivered in time. So the standing ovation for the official opening has had to be postponed. But now, you’ll be mightily relieved to learn, progress is being made as the complete contraption has arrived. But, and here’s the rub, it is too large to go through the door of the conveniences.
