Update 21-06-18

Despite setbacks during the last 12 months it was recently announced that the restoration of Haslingden Baths could recommence later this year. Break ins, vandalism and extensive theft of materials/fixtures have been prevalent and this has disrupted progress considerably.

A new Community Benefit Society has been formed to resurrect the project under the name of Haslingden Pool Limited. Funding is pledged by RBC, and grants have been obtained by the group but there remains a shortfall of finance. It is proposed to raise the additional finance by the end of September. The methods to be adopted were explained at a recent public meeting and subsequently at a meeting with RBC.

A sum in the region of £250,000 is the target the society hope to raise from the general public and business etc, by the offer of a share scheme. This has the advantage of providing individuals or groups part ownership and management of the facility.

Work is progressing on the share prospectus and marketing the concept, for public release in July.

The share offer is to be launched shortly and is intended to run for 5 to 8 weeks.

The group are keen to enrol additional members and details can be sought by contacting info@haslingdenpool.co.uk
