We want to make the disused public baths on Alford road a great community space again. The plan is to renovate the lido and the building next to it and turn it into a public space for all to enjoy.

In our eyes the old public baths in Alford have stood disused for too long and we need need your support to give it some life! Our plan is to use the same plot of land and renovate the lido and the derelict building alongside. We'd like to turn the old building into changing rooms and a cafe for all the community.

What we'll deliver:

  • Renovate the lido, re-paving the outer area
  • Restore the old building that sits alongside the lido

Why it's a great idea:

We'd like to bring some energy back to our local community and we think one of the best ways to do this is through renovating and re-imagining public spaces. You know that building that has sat derelict on Alford road for the last 25 years? Behind that building there used to be a public lido and we think it's been empty for too long!

Steps to get it done:

  • Renovating the building
  • Re-tiling the lido
