Is it a bird, is it a plane? Or is it a little superhero making a splash in the beautiful setting of historic Bramley Baths this half-term?

Our family-orientated Superheroes Swim is aimed at Clark Kents and Captain Marvels of all ages and features a pool featuring lots of small superhero inflatables set to a booming soundtrack of superhero blockbuster movie.

Bramley Baths CEO Sue Stones said:

“If you love comic books or superhero movies, this is the half-term swim for you! Our Star Wars-themed swims proved really popular last year, and we hope the thoughts of becoming a superhero in our pool will prove great fun for all the family.”

It runs:
• Thursday, 30 May: 1:15 pm – 2:15pm and
• Sunday, 2 June 2019 1:45 pm – 2:45 pm

Admission by booking only by calling into reception or by ringing 0113 256 0949.

Bramley Baths is also running Pirate Treasure Hunts for the adventurous swashbucklers among you, as well as our popular favourites such as Family Fun Swims, and an Inflatable Swim. Just turn up on the day for these.

Bramley Baths is a community-led, not-for-profit centre for fitness, health and fun, which houses a public gym, swimming pool, steam room and space for community events, meetings and fitness classes. The Grade II Listed building on Broad Lane been independently run since 2013.


While you’re here…

Producing your daily dose of West Leeds Dispatch comes at a cost!

There’s the hosting of the website you’re reading now, running our popular e-mail newsletter, membership of independent press regulator Impress, attending summer events, paying for equipment etc etc.

We need at least £200 a month just to break even – that’s money currently coming out of the pockets of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about what’s happening in our communities, connecting you with local groups and organisations as well as holding decision-makers to account and championing local issues.

And all that’s BEFORE we even think about paying something for people’s time – for instance, our editor puts in more than 24 hours a week in his ‘spare’ time to ensure The Dispatch publishes daily.

To put it bluntly, after nearly four years of daily publishing, we are not sustainable!

And we need YOUR help to continue …

For the cost of less than a couple of cups of coffee you can help support local community news and continue to give our communities a voice by taking out a subscription for just £4 per month (that’s just a pound a week).

As a thanks you’ll get your name on a roll of honour on our website. More importantly you will be enabling us to keep bringing you the news that matters about your neighbourhood.

Achieving a bedrock of supporters will give us a firm financial footing and help us plan for the future.
