Hello, Friends of the Lido, the Summer Lido season will soon be upon us. Next Month will see activity at the Lido entrance as the maintenance crew begin annual spring spruce up of the buildings. The Pool will be completely emptied scrubbed our and refilled. The machinery and boiler will be tested before the May 23rd opening day. As opening week approaches the active members of the Committee along with volunteers from the Friends will be hands-on helping.
