‘The Nairn Paddling Pool is the focal point of the Links play area and has been since I was a kid growing up in Nairn. However, over the last few years the Common Good Fund has paid out large sums of money for repairs, which have often led to unscheduled closures. We now need to have a widespread debate, via Community Councils and possibly a Ward Forum, on what aspirations the people of Nairn have for not only the Paddling Pool and play area, but the whole of the seafront, from the Harbour to the Baths.
It is up to myself and my ward colleagues to set the agenda, plus facilitate forums for widespread consultation.
Personally, I believe that as a bare minimum, we need to refurbish the paddling pool over the winter, or preferably provide an enhanced facility.'
