Local swimming club refused hire of Brockwell Lido
Brockwell Swimmers is a non-profit South London swimming club run by volunteers and based at Brockwell Lido, Herne Hill, London SE24 (this is still owned by Lambeth Council but managed by Fusion Lifestyle). The aims of the club are to encourage more people to swim and more people to use this wonderful Art Deco pool. We currently have over 100 members.
Since 2016 the club has run numerous successful events at the Lido including Summer Water Polo sessions and Club Spring Relays. All our events have proved popular and encouraged hundreds more people to use this wonderful outdoor pool. This is good for the future of Brockwell Lido, good for swimming and good for the local community.
However this year, despite many applications going back ten months, Fusion Lifestyle have refused us any hire of the pool.
For more information about our club please visit our web site at www.brockwellswimmers.com or social media #brockwellswim. Our club has also featured in National Magazines (Club of the Month in Outdoor Swimmer), is a registered Community Amateur Sports Club (or CASC) and featured in Lambeth Council publications.
