Paddling pools in Rhondda Cynon Taf

Another summer over and paddling pools remain closed because of Rhondda Cynon Taf Council cutting public services.


Ward councilors can set up committees and arrange for funding to reopen paddling pools as can be seen at Abercynon.


The local Labour councilor for Abercynon said “I know that Aberdare Cllr's are eager to work with local residents, businesses and voluntary sector to reopen pools.”

Well there are enough of them so why is the Aberdare Park paddling pool still closed?


Perhaps just one of the councilors would respond?


Or are they not so motivated as the Abercynon councillor


A campaign has recently been started to get the Aberdare pool back open! More info can be found at
