Decision due on Stirchley Baths. Tell us why it has to be ‘yes’!

Sink Or Swim
People were in no doubt that the Stirchley Baths HLF bid should swim, not sink, at a wonderful summer event

A decision on the Stirchley Baths Heritage Lottery fund bid is expected very soon. The West Midlands committee of the HLF met earlier this week to consider the bid to transform Stirchley Baths into a thriving community hub for local people and their decision is imminent.

Thanks to everyone who has been involved in the project and supported the HLF bid in whatever way. Now it’s crunch time – and the Stirchley Baths project has to swim!

Please tell us why the HLF decision *has* to be a ‘yes’ by:

The whole Stirchley community got behind the bid, creating a show of hands around the baths in April and culminating in a fantastic ‘Sink or Swim’ event in June where local people weighed in their support for a ‘yes’.

    The HLF have to say YES because it would be a great loss for Stirchley and Birmingham if another amazing historic building is lost!

  2. Suzanne Carter says:

    It has to be a ‘yes’ because without urgent capital investment this magnificent building may not last much longer!! The building was built as a community facility and it deserves to be once more; and working on the project I know that Stirchley Folk will use it, look after it and bring it back to the heart of the community. I guess the decision has already been made and I am waiting with anticipation to learn the outcome. A ‘no’ is simply unthinkable!
