Here’s a great selection of reading for those of you interested in the project. The first article comes from the Cheshire East Highways Bulletin and is special for us as it documents the first donation to be received by the Flag Lane Project funding campaign. The team presented a cheque for a fantastic £937, which was raised through the Near Miss Reporting scheme. It’s a brilliant kick start to the restoration and regeneration of the baths back in to community use so a huge THANK YOU to everyone at CEH.
Attached are also the Andy Morris interview and the Flag Lane Baths / Valley Park articles from the South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce and Industry magazines. You can find out a little more about Andy Morris who, as well as being the Committee Chairman of the Flag Lane Baths Community Project, is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Assurant Europe and get a wider update on the project also from the final article.
Here’s a link to the interview with Andy Morris, Committee Chairman of the Flag Lane Baths Community Project. Do take time to have a listen when you can – it gives a fantastic insight into this brilliant work and the benefits regenerating this iconic building will have right across the community.
Proffitts are pleased to announce that they are working with The Lighthouse Centre, the ‘Always Ahead’ Charity, Crewe Town Council and Assurant on a project to restore and transform the locally listed art-deco Flag Lane Baths in Crewe. The aim is to create a vibrant destination that fulfils the 21st Century social function for the people of Crewe while preserving the heritage of the building and keeping alive the memories of many generations of Crewe residents.
The plans are ambitious and include activities for young people, space to support the homeless, services to help unemployed residents, a café and a grocers and a whole host of facilities and support that can be enjoyed by the whole community.
We’ll keep you updated on our progress, so watch this space for more news on funding and next steps.
