A quick turnaround yesterday, and back to Hampton Row for the official reception that followed a few hours after that initial historic first swim in Bath’s newly-restored Cleveland Pools.
This time the gear WAS working and l was able to get that interview with Paul Simons, the Chair of a trust that has worked so hard, and over so many years, to reach this day.
Also a quick chat with Sharron Davies, MBE who is a Patron of the Trust.
It’s taken a 18-year campaign to save the Pools with the help of a National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) £6.1 million grant, and other sums of money from elsewhere.
Cleveland Pools is back in business – and looking better than ever – after a gap of almost 40 years!
