Anger & Frustration As St. Anne’s Paddling Pool Now Has ‘Leakage Issues’

The troubled St Anne’s paddling pool currently has leakage issue which will mean that its opening to the public will be on a reduced operating schedule. A Fylde Council spokesperson has said that this is due to an ongoing facility investigation addressing these leakage issues. The reduced hours of opening will be weekends, bank holidays and school holidays – when weather conditions allow.

This has not only greatly annoyed residents and visitors, but called into question the fitness for purpose and whether the Council has secured best value in developing this facility, One commented, ‘Absolutely ridiculous!!! Whoever is responsible for the failing and poor workmanship, needs to be sacked? The company procured to revamp the pool need to be charged for a professional company to fix the problem and quickly. Makes my blood boil this level of incompetency.’

Another said, ‘This didn’t leak for near 100 years till someone decided to put a ramp in, paint it with the wrong paint and damage to drainage gate! Then add chlorine and filter. Wasn’t broken don’t fix it comes to mind!’ Whilst one disgruntled resident said, ‘The biggest pothole in the Fylde. What a joke.’

Earlier problems were reported by Lytham St. Anne’s News last year.
