Sitka forest loo

Actually a little loo a.k.a. “restroom” or in Canada, “washroom” (which sounds like a laundry room!)

This relates to a post on a new FB page, “Spotlight on Paraparaumu and Raumati,” that Bernie Randall has set up following his dumping by Jonny Best as editor of the Paraparaumu-Raumati Community Board FB page (which will now probably go the way of the WCB one, which has had only 9 posts this year, 5 of them reposts from the KCDC site.)

“Community Board member Bernie Randall is urging the community to support iconic toilets at Maclean Park.

“The current toilets are a local and national disgrace. He believes if the toilets were iconic they could become a tourist attraction like the Far North Hundertwasser toilets.

“In the meantime, he suggests hiring a local artist to paint them. Look what Benneydale, population 200, managed to achieve.”

Like bus stop shelters, it’s an opportunity to create both public amenities and public art. ¬†Local volunteers can do that for minimal expense to the ratepayer.
