Ullapool pool woes

Ullapool swimming pool is run as a joint venture between Lochbroom Leisure and Highland Council, between them they have to work out how to replace the roof at a cost of £345,000. One wonders if this will throw a spanner into the works of present calculations concerning pools throughout the Highlands. The local community has started fund-raising but one imagines there will be pressure on Highland Council to contribute. The Press and Journal today:
'Since the pool opened in 1994 hundreds of children have learned to swim there, from south of Dundonnell up to north of Kinlochbervie. The pool’s existence is down to dedicated local fundraising, which took 15 years to raise the £140,000 needed to give the area it’s very own community-owned pool.' More here.
