Coronavirus latest: Bramley Baths shuts; Bramley and Armley parkruns & Farsley Farmers Market cancelled; Pudsey Community Project launched

Community-led Bramley Baths has announced it is temporarily closing due to the impact of Coronavirus – just a day after Leeds City Council shut its leisure centres.

Bosses at the historic Grade II listed building said the health of customers was the priority and said the Broad Lane baths would close at 9pm today/

A statement on its website said:

“Health and wellbeing is at the very heart of our organisation and we are committed to ensuring that we reduce the risk of Coronavirus for all our customers to an absolute minimum.

“We are determined to make sure the Baths is sustainable for the future and keep it at the heart of Bramley life. We’ve survived two world wars and the threat of closure in 2010, but we’re still here as a hub at the centre of our community.

“But as an independent community-led business we face a massive challenge and are going to need your help and support in the months ahead.”

Baths CEO Jayne Young is asking customers to re-new or take up a membership to help keep the Baths afloat while it’s closed.

People can take out a membership online here via direct debit.
