I read with interest the article about the planned use of the disused public convenience in Bear Road, Brighton (The Argus, April 1).
I am not, in principle, against Felix and Carol Guarriello's proposal to convert this property into a flower shop.
It would, without a doubt, be good for both themselves as a business and for the people visiting the cemetery to buy flowers.
But can anybody come up with the answer to the parking problems? This will cause customers to double park, causing even more congestion on one of Brighton's major roads.

Located in a former public loo between London Bridge and Tate Modern, Silka is a restaurant with a difference.

In The Black Bunker
The rehearsal room where my band practices is called The Black Bunker. It's actually a converted public toilet. There are silver hemispheres embedded in the ceiling. It's like looking at potential album covers while you play.

HELPING ART GO DOWN THE TOILET
ART-LOVERS can now enjoy exhibitions in the unconventional setting of a disused public toilet.
But far from being completely renovated, the Toilet Gallery in Kingston has maintained much of the original convenience’s former charm, with cubicle walls, toilet bowls and sinks in place.
It has certainly captured the imagination of people throughout the world, even prompting a number of similar sites in countries including Holland and Japan.
So visit the Toilet Gallery at 151 Clarence Street, Kingston (opposite Oceana Nightclub) to see for yourself. You won’t even have to spend a penny to get in.

Yippee, see, now we're exporting the idea .....

A collection of weird news stories from around the world.**
Actors could soon be treading the boards in the smallest theatre in the world - a converted Victorian loo.
The Theatre of Small Convenience would become the venue for one-man shows, poetry readings and puppet shows once the Victorian lavatory is transformed.
The council-owned building in Malvern, Worcs, would be able to seat about 10 people if plans go ahead.
