Govanhill Baths Community Trust are so sad to share the news of the passing of a dear friend and supporter, Gill Wright. Gill was the Development Manager at Victoria Baths in Manchester and founder of Historic Pools of Britain (HPB). She was an early supporter and advocate of the Save Our Pool campaign and Govanhill Baths Community Trust, with so much experience, enthusiasm and advice to share with us.

She considered historic baths and wash houses to be part of our social, cultural and built heritage and just as important as stately homes and castles – if not more. Gill visited Govanhill Baths on a number of occasions, and we had many wonderful visits to Victoria Baths.

She spoke at our Public Health & the Built Environment conference in 2017. Click to you view Gill’s speech on our YouTube Channel.

Our thoughts are with her friends and family. Rest In Peace Gill, you will be missed.
