Local Artist Backs Fundsurfer -

Bristol Trinity Centre working to save Jacob's Wells Swimming Bath

The momentum to restore Jacobs Wells Baths, Hotwells, Bristol, has seen a significant boost with the unveiling of a newly installed artwork on the front of the building as part of a Fundraiser to raise funds to repair and restore the Grade II former Dance Centre.

“I’m delighted to see these lovely designs which will make the outside of the building look so less sad! We’ve all waited a long time to see some sign that the beloved Jacobs Wells is going to be restored.  Well done to Trinity for making this happen” Councillor Paula O'Rourke.

The artwork, a bespoke pen and ink drawing by Bristol-based artist Amy Hutchings, features words shared by members of the Hotwells community as part of a community consultation led by Trinity Community Arts as part of their mission to restore and reopen the building.

The artwork features as a reward for the Jacobs Wells Fundraiser that we have launched on the Bristol based Fund Surfer platform.

We are calling for Bristol residents to give what they can to help us reach a £5,000 fundraising target. These funds will help towards crucial costs as part of the current investigations and identified works.  

Amy is not the first renowned artist to put their name to the appeal to save the building -  earlier this year esteemed actress Miriam Margolyes shared a heartfelt video outing the importance of community spaces, such as Jacobs Wells Baths, and encouraging people to get involved and support the drive to safeguard the building and re-open the space once more.
