AN ANONYMOUS DONOR has offered the gift of a children's paddling pool in Spend Park, and the work is to be carried out by the Surveyor. The pool will be in the hollow under the trees on the west side of the stream. The bed will be of concrete, and there will be a regulated supply of town's water from the mains continually flowing in and out. The Council have expressed thanks to the donor. We understand that a number of roundabouts from the Wicksteed Park will also be placed in Spencer Park.
