Well, we did it! We're absolutely over the moon that we have been awarded the money we need to get the Cleveland Pools firmly back on the Bath map: a development grant of £366,200 with earmarked funding of £4.1m. Huge thanks go to the Prince's Regeneration Trust for their expert advice and support in helping make this happen.
