Don’t cut hours at Bramley Baths

MAY I add my voice in support of the protesters campaigning to stop the cuts at Bramley Baths in Leeds.

The baths were opened in 1904. Leeds Corporation invited local architects to design the Bramley Baths and J Lane Fox won the commission.

In 1988, the Baths were closed but local Labour councillors and residents fought to have them re-opened.

A grant of £1.5m was obtained from the Sports Council and in 1992 the Baths reopened.

There are two sculptured owls on the front of the building – the symbol of Leeds.

Leeds City Council should keep them open.
