DURING recent weeks the swimming pool at the end of the seafront in Portishead, has been very much remarked regarding the possibilities of the future of the pool.

One fact is sure, the possibilities of flats, becoming built on the site in which the pool is situated, is quite out of line in the nature of the area.

Leaving the area clear would encourage the future population of wildlife, since it is very near to the wooded area, otherwise driving along the seafront would create the impression that one is driving towards a concrete block.

The possibility of loss of the pool, which has been enjoyed over the years by many people, needs very careful thought. To begin with the building structure that was put into the building of the pool would never happen today.

People visiting the area would miss the pool and would also find it in more or less a quieter state without the laughter of the swimmers enjoying themselves. The council are having problems in the operation of the pool. Residents do not wish to see the pool go. Privatisation is a further suggestion to consider. And let's trust that a favourable solution will be reached before next summer.
