Outdoor pool gets summer spruce-up


THE paddling pool on the West Cliff has been given a facelift in time for the summer season.

Scarborough Borough Council (SBC) has resurfaced the paddling pool, re-concreted and repainted the bottom and the sides.

The railings adjacent to the footpaths at Whitby Pavilion have been repaired and re-painted and seating next to the crazy golf has also been improved.

Martin Pedley, Scarborough Borough Council’s asset and risk manager said: “The council has, in conjunction with the voluntary sector, invested both time and money in continuing to revitalise the West Cliff area in preparation for the summer season and the influx of visitors to Whitby.”

West Cliff councillor Joe Plant added: “The improvement works that have been done both last year and this year is most welcome.

“Not only the visitors will benefit, but local people also and it again shows working in partnership with the voluntary sector does make a difference.”
