The Govanhill Baths Community Trust is recruiting new Board members who are committed to helping the Trust re-open the Baths as a Wellbeing Centre and contribute to the social, cultural and built regeneration of Govanhill as a community on the Southside of Glasgow.
We are specifically looking for someone with charity accounts and finance experience to take on the role of Treasurer.
These are exciting times for the Govanhill Baths Community Trust. After 16 years of determined campaigning the GBCT has been awarded substantial grant money to begin work on bringing the building back into operation. We expect to have raised the full 6.4 million needed to start the restoration and refurbishment of the building by March 2018. We have just been successful in securing community investment of over £280,000 by issuing community shares in the project and will be transferring our operations to a community benefit society when the building opens.
The refurbishment is scheduled to begin in 2018 and will bring into service the Ladies’ pool, Learners’ pool, Turkish Suite and Sauna, Gym, Rooftop Gardens, a Community Kitchen/Cafe and Multipurpose community spaces. While the former public washhouse, or ‘steamie’, will be turned into a theatre venue and community events and arts space.
The Board currently meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 7pm at the Govanhill Baths at 99 Calder Street, G42 7RA.
This is a voluntary position.
Deadline to apply: 22/12/17
