Peter Walker is the chairman of Stirchley Neighbourhood Forum, a community group run by and for local people. Membership is open to anyone who lives or runs a business in Stirchley. The Forum provides an opportunity for local people to discuss and influence the issues that affect the village.
Here, Peter explains why the Heritage Lottery decision on transforming Stirchley Baths into a community centre just has to be a yes…
I can’t wait for the result of our funding application to the Heritage Lottery Fund. It has to happen, doesn’t it?
Stirchley Baths has been closed for over 22 years now and I fear that it will be lost forever should this project not go ahead.
There are so many community groups in Stirchley, all waiting to move into the community centre that Stirchley residents deserve for all that they do for the village.
Somewhere modern, clean and safe where young mums and dads can take their children and meet others, where teenagers can meet their friends and pursue their needs in a safe environment and where the older residents can meet with their friends.
Stirchley is a strong community – let’s keep it that way.
