CONSTRUCTED in 1930, the paddling [...].
Very soon it became a paddling pool and for many years it was very popular, until it became unsavoury and no longer suitable.
A lady councillor, who cared about local amenities, demanded the council to rectify it and modernise it also.
This entailed halving it, with one section to be a play area and the other half to be a shallow pool suitable for younger children.
A wall was built at the North-side to shelter everyone from the wind, and a fence around the circumference to exclude dogs.
Unfortunately, it is in a sad state and deserves for the children's sake some adequate repairs to be undertaken.
Following the death of the kind and understanding councillor, the public put a memorial plaque in memory of her. Mounting it on the sea-side wall and benches for people to sit on and relax.
Who now knows its future? VERA ROBINSON MBE, Redcar
