Poetry to your ears

Before we show you the latest set of audited accounts, we wanted to share a poem that our newest co-opted Board Member Julie wrote to celebrate the big event of the year, the AGM.

Every year at Bramley Baths,
We hold our AGM.
That is our Annual General Meeting,
And here it comes again.
Time to enjoy this local treasure,
That sits before our eyes,
Teaching more adults than ever to learn to swim,
What a brilliant surprise!
The Triathlon club established,
Brownlee brothers come on down.
You can join the gym, take a steam or massage,
Become the fittest in the town.
And all at bargain prices,
It will not cost fancy money,
Families sharing time together,
Getting healthy – all sounds funny.
But we would really love to see you,
Have your input, make things grow,
As we can only serve the community better,
If the community let us know…..
Just what would be most useful,
Perhaps more gardening would be good?
Come along and join us,
So we can do all that we should.
And if that does not entice you,
There will be a little treat,
A special cake like Bramley Baths,
We can all just share and eat.

Here’s the accounts for 2016-2017 for the financial year ending March 2017.

It’s been a good year, putting us in a great position to start to focus on involving more people and improving the facilities here, which will take a fair bit of work, lots of brains, and some external funding.

    I attended Bramley Baths AGM and paid my £1.00 to John as he explained it was to add my name to a list so am hoping this was done as I didnt sign anything.

    Sorry my above email was not finished, also wanted to say how thrilled I was to hear of all the success going on in every corner. 6 years ago on my 70 th Birthday I did a sponsered swim I swam half a mile 36 lengths of B.B. and raised £432 00. for the much needed funds in those early days. My Husbands picture gaed 12 years old holding a cup he won for a swimming medley is up in the foyer thanks to Fran helping me to get this done as in September 1970 it was also our Golden Wedding anniversery and as we met at the baths aged only 11years old Bramley Baths is very special to us both and to out family This story was actually published in the Evening post at the time. So yes as will imagine sooooo pleased at the success story and long may it continue. Kind regards Ann & Mike Greenhough
