An invitation to the Haggerston Pool Campaign Candidates Breakfast at Laburnum Boat Club on Saturday 24th April
The invitation is to the Haggerston Pool Campaign Candidates Breakfast at Laburnum Boat Club on Saturday 24th April...
This will include:
A very rare opportunity to have a short tour of the long closed Haggerston Pool
A chance to find out from Haggerston Pool Community Trust about the plans that are underway for its re-opening
A chance to meet prospective candidates for the local Ward, Hackney Mayor and Parliament - and let them know what you think about Haggerston Pool and other local issues - in a friendly, informal setting
9.30am - 11am : Tours of Haggerston Pool - tours will take about 15 minutes - numbers of participants at any time are limited, so please come early to ensure a place. Access is pretty restricted due to Health and Safety considerations (in agreement with Hackney Council). Hard hats will be provided - and please wear shoes not sandals.
10am - 12 noon: Coffee and croissant will be available at Laburnum Boat Club in Laburnum Street behind Haggerston Pool from 10am - 12 noon - along with a chance to speak to the candidates - as well as other local community members and activists.
We have invited the parliamentary and mayor candidates as well as all the candidates from Haggerston, Hoxton, Queensbridge and De Beauvoir wards who also have a keen interest in the re-opening of Haggerston Pool, alongside representatives from local TRAs and local community projects.
Letting us know...
We really hope that you are able to come along to this event and look forward to seeing you there - and it would be really helpful if you could let us know so we can judge the numbers for access to the pool and buy the right amount of breakfast...
