Our Team

Love Withington Baths consists of a core team of five committed members, all from the local community, working hard together to drive forward the Big Vision. That said, this would not be possible without the input from many, many more people who you can meet here.


With a background in small business development, Paul has lived in some weird and wonderful countries (2 were weird, 1 was wonderful). He now works with sports clubs, helping them to secure funding to improve their facilities. Slightly below average football genes have been safely passed on to the next generation.


Sian is a property & interiors expert with 18 years practical building & design experience. Local resident, step mum and gym irregular. Full time daily job landlord, interior designer and social media addict, Sian's spare time is filled with foodie events, heritage swimming baths & being a bossy boots.


A town planner by profession with some 25+ years of experience in planning, development & regeneration in Manchester, Dave is also and events promoter by night & by day Project Manager for the new stadium for FC United of Manchester. The middle one of three generations of Mancunians who have learnt to swim at Withington Baths.


Independent business and social media whizz, Helen runs Didsbury Life, advising and working with local businesses, organising events such as WestFest and promoting collaborations within the community. Long time local resident of West Didsbury, she is an avid Instragrammer and Italiaphile.


Dan is a maths graduate and MBA. Proud father of 2 girls and owner of one dog, he's a local resident, and profoundly average triathlete. By day, he's an IT programme director for a FTSE 100 company. By night, he's our numbers man.

And not forgetting...


Every community campaign needs a go-to man, a man with a drill, a man who can. We rely on ex-city centre firefighter of 32 years and TV DIY super-hero Martin to do all our heavy stuff, fix things on walls, facilitate events and be our all-round Mr Reliable.
