Fond Farewell to Peter Karl Burgess, Brockwell Lido stalwart

20th December was an extraordinary day in Herne Hill, when first a walk took place in Brockwell Park in memory of avid Lido supporter and former BLU committee member Peter Karl Burgess, then his hearse led cyclists and cars from Brockwell Lido to West Norwood Crematorium, for the funeral. 

The service was very well attended by many Lido users and Herne Hillians, and it included a meditation. A reception followed at the Tulse Hill Hotel where Peter's memory was toasted.

Peter died unexpectedly - his incredibly good energy was inspiring and numerous Lido users hope to find a way to leave his photo hanging in the Lido gym. Visit Brockwell Lido Users' Facebook page to see more photos:
