Swimming pool project gets boost

A SCHEME to reopen a swimming baths axed after council cuts has received a funding boost.

The Govanhill Baths Community Trust (GBCT) has been working to restore the pool in Glasgow since it closed in 2001.

Now workers from the trust have joined forces with The Prince's Regeneration Trust to push forward plans to refurbish the Edwardian building.

The move has received a further push with £34,000 from the Big Lottery Fund.

GBCT has appointed the Duke of Rothesay's charity as project manager to oversee the work at the site. It is also managing a programme of community engagement activities. This will lead to the appointment of a design team and a full Business Plan.
