Hindley Baths
Started by: SoniaB (83) Report abuse
Does anyone on this website know what's happening with Hindley Baths? Went last Wednesday morning about 9.30 and a note was pinned to the door saying'Closed today for Pool maintenance'but a member of staff came to the door saying'Don't take any notice of that, we (14 members of staff) have just been given our notice this morning and we are now redundant. We haven't even been paid from last month. We have been told Wigan Council will protect our jobs.'The Baths have been run by Phoenix Charitable Trust since 2013,after Wigan Council relinquished responsibiity.

Story in newspaper is the Charitable Trust have gone into administration and Wigan Council are trying to get another company to take over the running of the baths

Ex councillor Jim Ellis, who sued Wigan council for defamation earlier on this year, is director of the trust which runs Hindley baths.

I wonder if they've purposely 'pulled the plug on him' (no pun intended! )
