During the Lido’s ’closed season’ a considerable amount of repair and maintenance work has and is being undertaken ahead of our opening in March. Work started in early September last year and has been continuous across the Lido site since then. As with works of this kind, the majority are unseen by those who use the Lido but are essential to ensure its long term viability.
The costs of these works are not insignificant with costs approaching £400,000. The main work elements are:
• Repairs and Maintenance to the fabric and engineering of the Main and Children’s Pool Plant Rooms and the Main Boiler House - £222,000
• Repairs to the Main and Children’s Pools including repairs and retiling of the upper areas of the Main Pool walls - £ 66,000
The Trustees remain focussed on providing a first class Lido facility for our community and believe that the extensive works we are undertaking over the winter period support that desire.
