Quoted from Reading Post: OPINION
"Credit to the Campaign.
There are now five bidders interested in restoring and developing the Kings Meadow Baths. After years of valiantly trying to raise the cash to renovate the building themselves, the volunteers from the the King's Meadow Campaign are now joined by four new groups after Reading Borough Council put the site back onto the market in November '12.
Ideas for the site now variously include a renovated swimming pool, restaurant, cafe, ice rink, function hall, cultural centre, open air theatre and market.
Whether the King's Meadow Campaign ultimately wins the bid remains to be seen.
But its volunteers can take credit for fighting so hard since they got the building Grade II listed back in 2005.
From the bids now on the table it looks clear that the baths will be saved as some sort of cultural space for Reading people. That's what the campaigners wanted from the start."
Will it be the "People's Pool?
