We're very pleased to hear that Moseley Road Baths in Balsall Heath has been granted a reprieve. The building, which was scheduled for closure this month, has been given a stay of execution until March 2018. The hope is that this will allow adequate time for a coalition of community and heritage organisations to work alongside Birmingham City Council to create an organisation able to take on the running of the building. All partners are committed to a continuation of public swimming at the building, ensuring that the local community can continue to swim there, as they have for almost 110 years.
For the full details of the decision go to the Friends of Moseley Road Baths website.
