I personally apologize for the toilets – we have NEVER had a toilet problem like this before – we had to use new providers, there is a national toilet shortage of both units and staff, we tried everything we could to improve them. I assure you we will never let that happen again! Lots of things we know how to improve – this year has been very challenging and rest assured we are on it for 2022……
