I HAVE followed the saga of the Paradise Pool over the last year or so via your paper.
This week I attended a hydrotherapy session at the pool and I wondered with some interest what kind of facility I would find. According to some critics, the pool is run-down and poorly managed.
To my very pleasant surprise I found a very clean and tidy set-up with cheerful and helpful staff. I really enjoyed my session and intend to use the pool on a regular basis in the future.
Having seen this facility it made me reflect on recent comments in the Press that a new pool would be the only solution to the ongoing problems.

One final comment - perhaps some of the problems with the pool might be more appropriately associated with the users of the pool rather than the facility or its management.
