Lido Spring & Summer Season – Here We Come!
Users and supports of our lido will no doubt be absolutely delighted to hear today’s news from Peterborough Limited (a subsidiary of the city council, who have taken over the management of the city’s sports and leisure facilities from Vivacity) that we will be able to start swimming in our wonderful lido again… IN JUST A FEW WEEKS’ TIME!
Despite fears that the pool may not be able to open this year, Peterborough Limited have pulled out all the stops – not only to enable it to open – but so that it can do so AHEAD OF SCHEDULE on 29th March 2021 … earlier than ever before!
Given the still-prevailing coronavirus restrictions, there will be limitations on swim times and capacity (please see the Vivacity website for more details https://Vivacity Peterborough), and users will need to pre-book their swims online in advance of their visit. However, if the Government’s “roadmap” runs to plan these restrictions will gradually be lifted, with capacity increased and swim times extended, so that by the end of July we will once again see life at our lido resume to the bright, vibrant, family-friendly environment we knew and loved – before Covid hit us.
Our Committee Chair is meeting with Peterborough Limited this week to discuss what lies ahead this season, and this will be followed by our committee meeting on Thursday (11th March).
Last year was a difficult one in many ways, and it was devastating not to be able to escape to our wonderful lido, but your committee is very excited about the year ahead – and we will be working with Peterborough Limited to ensure our lido goes from strength to strength. We will feed all news and developments back to our members* just as soon as we can.
