I was thinking of starting a collection box at the entrance to the Brunswick River’s main wall to raise funds for the great holes appearing in it as high seas suck the sand and soil out of the rocks.
It’s the state government’s shame.
While we are at it, Torakina toilets at the entrance to the wall have long been a black hole and I have done a bit of tub-thumping (pardon the puns) about our dark and dank facilities. They were an award-winning design back in the 70s but I fear they haven’t had any work done on them since then.
The state is spending nothing on the main wall’s deterioration and the council has no ability to raise rates to refurb the toilet block. So we turn to desperate measures: visitors to the main wall are called on to donate and through this they ensure the necessary work is undertaken.
That was until I had to use the loo at the Rails Park in Byron last Friday. They were another shock! What are we thinking when we know this sad state of our facilities does such damage to brand ‘Brunswick and Byron’.
