Kintore fountain update

At the Kintore and District Community Council meeting on September 17, the council heard that there had been a maintenance issue with the fountain that had resulted in the filter becoming blocked.
This meant that there was a danger of overheating and the pump had been switched off. This is why the fountain has not been working recently.
The community council noted the excellent response that there had been from people to join a “Fountain Friends” group to keep a check on the fountain and add chemicals.
There was concern expressed that the enthusiasm of these volunteers may wane, if they are not followed up and given the necessary instruction soon.
It was also agreed that it would be disappointing if the fountain were not be be back up and running before its scheduled winter shut-down.
