Ipswich Star reports: Broomhill Lido National Lottery funds remain secure.

The National Lottery Heritage Fund has confirmed it remains committed to the project for the town, even after a bid to the government’s Levelling Up Fund to get the final chunk of cash needed was unsuccessful.

Ipswich MP Tom Hunt and Central Suffolk and North Ipswich MP Dr Daniel Poulter wrote jointly to the National Lottery Heritage Fund, one of the original core backers of the project, to seek reassurances that the £3.4m in core funding is still guaranteed.

Mark Ling, the chairman of the Broomhill Pool Trust, said: “It is a most welcome and emphatic response from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

“It strongly reaffirms their intent to keep their funding in place whilst all other funding avenues are explored, and a solution found.

“The fact is that the majority of funding is already in place and this project can be delivered if all parties work together to explore every avenue to bridge the gap.

“As Sir Alf famously said, ‘you’ve won it once, now go out there and win it again.”
