Brockwell Lido Mid-Winter Swim?

Does anyone know if this is happening this year?

I wimped out last year, but feel the recent cold weather may have toughened me up sufficiently.

Will probably be January as the pool repairs are not due to finish until just before Christmas. More time to put on the layers..

I'm up for this!  Be good to know exactly when it is.

Useful websites to keep checking for this info are Brockwell Lido and Brockwell Lido Users. Indeed, Brockwell Lido Users are currently saying ´We hope to have a date for a winter swim very soon. Watch this space!´.

For reference, the mid winter swim was held on Saturday 19th December last year.

I have rather rashly issued a dare to do this.  Ha ha.

No swimming but carol singing with a brass band and a poolside barbeque on Wednesday 22nd December.  Food from 6pm.  Carol singing 7-9pm. You can watch the pool being filled at a litre every 6 monutes. Expert mathematicians assure us it will be full in time for the icy swim at 12 noon on 31st December.
