"Scarborough's MP says Alpamare hadn't thought enough about the off-season before it got into financial difficulty.

We've told you recently how the operator was facing a winding up order over a £700,000 debt to British Gas.

Other creditors include site owners Benchmark Leisure, which is owed £2.8 million, another gas company and an electricity supplier.

It successfully filed for a Company Voluntary Order and restructured its debts, allowing it to continue running the water park.

But it's reduced its opening times to weekends and holidays, although it's intended that a new Wellness Spa will open through the year.

Robert Goodwill said:

"I think the summer footfall and number of customers has been along expectations and they were very pleased with that. I think what they possibly haven't factored in is how seasonal a resort that Scarborough is and that there may be some local people that use it regularly, but it isn't the sort of facility you go to if you're wanting to train for the Olympics. We've got the Sports Village for that."

If only they had a pool you could actually swim in ... next to the fence with a retractable floor in the main arena for the ice twirling.

Or indeed if Duce actually turned up at the local residents meetings.

Blimey .. how time flies ;-)

Far too exciting...

“It’s a shame that more people don’t actually see their own cities,” says Quinn, who, rather than carrying a flag, wears the orange trousers of the municipal street sweepers..."

"Locals, too, are looking for novel ways to engage with their home cities. Eugene Quinn leads “Urban adventures around his adopted city of Vienna, including the Ugly Vienna Tour, the Corruption Tour, the Midnight Tour, and even a Smells Like Vienna Spirit Tour, which explores the olfactory delights of the Austrian capital. He says they attract as many as 80% locals."
