Anyone know why the pells has been left to go to crap?! The pond in particular, walls crumbling down and the water level down to a murky puddle! Islands could do with a good sorting out as well. Surely it can't be good for the wildlife living in there. Been told that when it first opened it was all lite up of a night and regularly clean.... bit of a shame really.

I remember as a kid it used to be full of rubbish, shoes, shopping trolleys etc. Got cleaned up and was much better. Unfortunately local govt budgets have been slashed so things like this are now down the pecking order. Vote Tory, watch our public spaces crumble.. alternatively we could all chip in like David Cameron's "big society" idea.. no discount on council tax though mind.!

I too remember it as a kid. It used to look really shabby with floating litter, empty plastic bread wrappers, plastic cups from the pool vending machines and ice lolly sticks, and it used to pong, especially if I disturbed the bottom sludge after I'd fallen in, again !!!

According to the townhall there are projects waiting for the north street work to start before they can. Some sort of cafe for the swimming pool and playground - lake works and pumps to froth the water now that the old stream doesnt fill it - new play equipment and other stuff. They have been waiting to get the flood walls out of the way and they also will get some of the dosh coming from the north street building.

I'm grateful for Nevillman starting this discussion and being so generous as to refer back to me. My delay in saying anything... more
