We are a small group of dedicated and professional volunteers with varied professional backgrounds, skills and experience. What connects and unites us is our passion to regenerate the derelict Otley baths. Each of us takes a lead role in a specific functional area but as a small team our roles are fluid. This ensures we all have a well-developed and rounded understanding of the challenges we face and ensures sound collective decision-making.
