Nottingham Post letdown on our paddling pool

Just get a bit fed up when the local newspaper runs a story whereby it contrives to get parents to condemn the council for fixing a paddling pool (again) with only a week of Summer holidays remaining.
Just what do they want – to not fix it?

In the medium term, we do face a challenge.
The paddling pool breaks down more often than we’d want – it’s aging.
Elsewhere in the city, kids get more modern water facilities – splash facilities.
The council has to plan for the pool’s replacement; but there is a simple pleasure in a paddling pool that is now not provided anywhere else in the city, so maybe a future facility will contain a bit of the traditional and the modern.
