Scalding hot showers at park
11:29am Thursday 2nd August 2012 in Letters
MILLIONS have been invested into a new Orford Jubilee Park, but someone, either architects or construction workers, forgot to install the cold water taps in the showers.
The sport centre operators feel safe from any possible claims by putting up notice boards warning visitors to be aware of the very hot water. After several hours of active sport how is it possible to stand under the steaming hot water?
There is only one thing you wish to do – stand under the cold water instead. Today I saw a young girl spring screaming from under the shower. There is nowhere else to have a normal shower to cool the body. I suppose that the sauna is cooler than the showers.
I wonder how the authorities even confirmed such a project without water tap regulators. Maybe constructors were hurrying to finish their job before the Queen’s visit and forgot to install cold water taps?
It is bizarre that even after complaints to the reception, nothing has changed. If this problem is not resolved, one day we will hear that someone has been badly scalded.
