Nice to see kids hav­ing fun – but what next?

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your - TONY DAL­LESSIO

I hAd my usual walk in the city cen­tre to­day, it was a lovely sunny day and it was nice to see the long awaited foun­tains op­er­at­ing,

It was also nice to see chil­dren hav­ing fun and splashing about un­der the foun­tains, how­ever, I do not be­lieve that when peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil first dreamed of this vi­brant “pi­azza” with foun­tains, it in­tended that the foun­tains would be used as “show­ers” and some­where to “cool off” on a nice sunny day (al­though us poor mor­tals did).

how long will it be be­fore the chil­dren are re­placed by adults keep­ing cool?

how long will it be be­fore The Lido be­gins to suf­fer (af­ter all,

and start fin­ing peo­ple that do?

why pay to go swim­ming when you can shower and keep cool in the city cen­tre and maybe your part­ner do­ing the shop­ping?).

And most of all, how long will it be be­fore peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil puts a pro­hi­bi­tion or­der on the use of “show­er­ing and keep­ing cool” un­der its foun­tains I ThInk it is a great for kids be­cause when I went there on June 1 and there were loads of kids play­ing, weav­ing in and out of the jets, It will also give it a clean fresh feel­ing the city. It is also nice to watch the jets on a sunny day.

DANIEL WHITE Re­GARdS the Cathe­dral Square foun­tains. £2.8 mil­lion from our coun­cil tax could have been bet­ter spent. What per­cent­age of my tax has gone on this eye­sore that will last one month be­fore it is van­dalised?
