Pool warming up

Welcome Back (soon) for a Swim with a Difference!

Claire Lido News

We are pleased to confirm we can open The Lido in 2020 and we should be able to announce the opening date soon.
Please bear with us. You may have read Emma Pusill’s illuminating article on the challenges facing pools around the country. If so, you will understand this is no easy task and many Lidos simply will not open this year. Thanks to some really hard work by our staff and volunteers, we are delighted that ours can.
In line with government guidance, we have reviewed all our Lido operations and made numerous changes to maximise everyone’s safety.
The experience will be different. To control numbers, we will operate a very different timetable from usual, with all sessions being timed, and you will have to book and pay for your swim in advance by phone or email.
As a small charity, opening for these numbers with reduced hours exposes us to a degree of financial risk but we are keen to offer the pleasure of some outdoor swimming this summer for the benefit of our community. Prices will need to be higher as a result and we hope everyone will support us.
Full details will be available here on the website in due course and we look forward to welcoming you for a dip soon. Keep watching this space!
