Birmingham City Council has been spearheading efforts by local authorities to slash local budgets and open services up to the private sector. A huge chunk of this will affect frontline services.
At the Friends of Moseley Road Baths we’re concerned that public swimming facilities across Birmingham will be transferred into the private sector and effectively run by Trusts. We believe that this jeopardises the long-term future of the building as a swimming facility and may affect accessibility.
As such we will be joining with local residents, council workers, community groups and trade unions on Saturday to demonstrate against the cuts. Everyone will be gathering from noon in St Philips Square. We’ll be there with a banner, so please do come and join us!
There is more information on the Birmingham Against the Cuts website, along with a whole host of reasons why you should get involved.
