A new Chairman for the Friends of Moseley Road Baths

At our recent Annual General Meeting, James Gillies was elected as the new Chair of the Friends of Moseley Road Baths. James succeeds Russ Spring, who stepped down this year after four years in the post. Russ remains on the Committee, but without a specific portfolio, having served as Chair since the group was constituted in early 2007.

The Friends of Moseley Road Baths would like to publicly thank Russ for all of his hard work and endeavours on behalf of the group over these last four or more years. His tireless campaigning has been a major factor in keeping the Baths in the public spotlight and ensuring that it has continued to function when some would have seen it closed for good.

As a keen swimmer and local resident, James Gillies has been involved with the group since its inception. He has supported Russ to plan and facilitate AGM’s but he’s key role has been setting up and maintenance of the group’s three websites. Most recently this involved the design of our Pool of Memories website.

The AGM also saw Rachel Gillies re-elected as Secretary and Mark Gunton as Treasurer.

Friends of Moseley Road Baths committee meetings take place each month at Anderton Park School Children’s Centre, Denis Road, Sparkhill (start time 7:30pm) and are open to anyone. May’s meeting will be held on Wednesday 9th and a full list of committee dates for the next 12 months can be found here www.friendsofmrb.co.uk/events
