Portsmouth City Council are proposing replacing Hilsea Splashpool with a water play area (similar to the one by the Blue Reef Aquarium in Southsea). Details of this proposal are in Flagship magazine. PCC are keen to receive your feedback on this proposal – let them know what you think by email email@example.com or writing to Hilsea Splash…pool, Parks Service, Portsmouth City Council, PO1 2AD. All comments must be received by 20.12.2010
We had a very disturbing incident today whereby an ice cream van tried to operate near to Hilsea Splash pool. We know that nobody has a licence to operate in that area & were very concerned about the effects this could have on kiosk sales (profits of which go directly to Hilsea Lido Pool for the People & the project to re-open Hilsea Lido). We approached the people in the van & they tried to tell us that they were members of HLPP Trust and were raising funds for the project - they even had a piece of paper in the window suggesting that they were part of the Trust (see the photo - the details on it are correct but the document itself does not come from the charity). They then said that 20% of their profit was being donated to the Trust, something we knew to be untrue. We managed to get the registration number of the ice-cream van & reported them to the Community Wardens, who are pursuing the matter. We will be contacting Trading Standards to report them. Please, please, please, if you are approached by anybody saying that they are raising funds for Hilsea Lido get in touch with us & check it out before handing over any money. We have a number of collection tins with various shops and other outlets & we attend a variety of fetes & other events & organise events ourselves. We need funds to assist us with this project but we do not want people to be giving money to charlatans and crooks posing as supporters of HLPP Trust.
