An online site protesting at the impending toilet closures in East Devon has been found on the web. Its address is at the end of this letter and any or all of the members of the public may log in and complete the online petition.Although this may not be the most savoury of subjects, the provision and maintenance of public toilets is a very emotive one in an area which supports many elderly people and because, of its beautiful situation, attracts a great many visitors who depend on these toilets. May I ask that all of your readers, who are able, to go online and fill in the form. The resulting information will, after tabulation, be presented to East Devon District Council.The online petition can be found at http://www.saveourloos.org.uk/Ron Roberts.10 Littlemead Lane, Exmouth.EDITOR'S NOTE: EDDC has issued the following statement in response to material being posted on the Journal website: "EDDC strongly and categorically refutes any suggestion that it "has decided" to reduce funding on the district public toilets, as suggested by a web petition. The council has refurbished toilets in Budleigh Salterton and refurbishment of blocks at Honiton and Seaton is in progress. Many of the district's toilets are open year round and those that are closed for the winter are about to be reopened for the summer season - on April 1 to be precise. Indeed, the toilets at Orcombe Point, Exmouth, have been opened at weekends earlier than scheduled due to the fine weather.
