Thread Name: If You're Coming to Sidmouth...
Subject: RE: If You're Coming to Sidmouth...
TOILETS! Twice today I have heard the MC at the Ham Marquee say that there are, new for this year, extra toilets outside the marquee. Fine so far, but he then goes on to say that this means you don't therefore have to go and use the " other smelly ones". If, by that, he means the public loos near the sea front, I can imagine the good folk of the local Council will not be best pleased to hear them described thus. I have always been impressed in previous years at how well they have been kept clean, re-stocked with paper, etc, especially given the huge numbers of people using them! (but of course, I've never been in the gents' loo!)
No doubt he thought he was being funny, but somewhat lacking in tact!
