Baths set to reopen on 16th April!

We have received a further update from Cllr Mullaney stating that the Baths is due to reopen on 16th April.  We’re REALLY excited to see Pool 2 full of water – how inviting!  However, with less than a week until the building opens its doors we have still had no answer from Hall Green Constituency Councillors to our letter which asked how the reopening would be publicised and whether or not school have been told of the reopening.  We’ll be pushing them to ensure that they go all out to get swimmers back!

Here is Cllr Mullaney’s update:

I visited Moseley Road baths this morning and can confirm that the staff are working towards re-opening the baths at 12noon on Monday 16th April.

I attach two photos that I took this morning. As you will see the pool is now fully re-filled and this morning the staff started the process of heating up the pool.

Having dipped my hand in the pool, I can assure you the water is cold. Re-heating should take a few days. We should have a definite confirmation of the 12noon opening tomorrow afternoon. The staff want to see how much they can manage to raise the temperature of the pool in 24 hours and then they will be confident of the exact time of opening.

  1. If this vital facility is going to be preserved it’s time to rethink your strategy with regards to relationships with all parties on the local council. If Martin Mullaney made the election in Moseley and Kings Heath a referendum on the future of the baths then the result isn’t pretty.

  2. If you can suggest a strategy that you think would help then please let us know. We wrote to the Chair of Hall Green Constituency back in March and have had no response. Pupils who sent petitions have had no response. We have asked for a meeting to present further pupil’s letters, get clarification on policy issues and discuss a way for us to work together but have had no response.

    We are here, visible and (honestly!) really quite approachable! In fact we’ve been meeting with people who have been appointed by the Heritage Lottery Fund to put together a large bid for repairs today.

    The staff at the Baths are being inundated since the building reopened. I think that’s the best referendum on what the community want to see happen with the building.
