Friends of Bingley Pool is working with Bradford Metropolitan District Council to maintain and improve the swimming and gym facilities at Bingley Pool.
We formed in the course of discussions with BDMC on the future of Bingley Pool. At the current time, BDMC plan to close Bingley Pool when the new pool at Squire Lane is complete. This is estimated to happen in 2020.
During this period Friends of Bingley Pool will work with the BDMC to raise funds and facilitate community involvement with the running of Bingley Pool. We are now in active discussions with BDMC on an asset transfer of Bingley Pool to our group. We need to assess if it will be viable for Friends of Bingley Pool to take over Bingley Pool when BDMC withdraw their funding.
Friends of Bingley Pool is a charitable incorporated organisation and recognised by the charity commission. We are a membership organisation and also have a board of 8 trustees.
