A Splashing Time for the School Holidays as Paddling Pool Reopens
The paddling pool in Warminster Town Park was officially reopened on Monday following essential works to repair and repaint it. The opening nearly didn’t go ahead when it was discovered that the water tap had been vandalised on Thursday afternoon by someone who had managed to breach the protective barriers. Fortunately the Town Council was able to have the damage repaired and filling the pool started early on Monday morning.
The official opening was attended by Councillors Pip Ridout (Deputy Mayor), Andrew Davis, Sue Fraser and Keith Humphries, along with Town Clerk Heather Abernethie and officers Stuart Legg and Judith Halls.
Councillor Ridout said: “We are delighted that we were able to open the paddling pool at the beginning of the school holidays. We’ve had such a good spell of weather recently and are hoping this will continue so that the children can get maximum enjoyment from one of the star features of our wonderful park. We will be continuing to make improvements once the park is fully transferred to Town Council ownership, as we are aware of how upset our residents have been about recent neglect.”
