Mark Gunton is a Trustee of Moseley Road Baths CIO, assuming the position of Treasurer. He is also a trained lifeguard and boiler operator. Since June he has provided over 600 voluntary hours to help ensure the Pool remains open as often as possible.
He has had vast experience in the daily running of a small finance department using many online and bespoke software platforms, plus export/import knowledge accumulated over 20 years. He has been a member of the Friends of Moseley Road Baths since its inauguration in November 2006 and has been the Friends͛ Treasurer for 8 years. As a valuable asset to the Friends, he has co-ordinated benefit concerts, open day events, tours of the Grade II* listed building, liaison with the Baths staff and Birmingham City Council, two Arts Council applications totalling over £27K and countless offsite events accumulating valuable funds for the campaign.
Over the years with the Friends he has provided over 200 unpaid hours, raising over £5,000. Mark is a regular swimmer at the Baths and, during any spare time away from his commitment to the Baths, he likes to travel, attend concerts, theatre and Walsall Football Club and is an avid vinyl collector and keen cross-stitcher.
I have been closely associated with the campaign to keep swimming at Moseley Road Baths for over 12 years and am now a proud member of a hardworking and dedicated team of volunteers and staff.
