Swimming pool roof - prompt response to a freedom of information request

Gurnites will recall the recent image and the comment from a regular reader concerning the vegetation in the swimming pool rone pipes. Article and image here.  Following a further comment from another regular reader that we did not publish we asked High Life Highland, the Arms Length Organisation that runs the Swimming Pool and the library in Nairn, the following question:  "Could you tell me please if Nairn Swimming Pool has suffered any leaks in the roof at any time this year and if so what the cause of the leaks has been attributed to."

The reply came very quickly and stated: "I refer to your Freedom of Information request dated 18 July.  High Life Highland  can confirm that according to our records, Nairn Leisure Centre has had  one  minor roof leak this year due to a blocked gutter during a severe downpour.  This was repaired by our maintenance provider, the Highland Council, in July 2013."
