I originally wrote the message below as a comment on the story about a new Swimmers Club for Brockwell. Rather than answer the points I make, the author, ‘the Brockwell Swimmer’, unpublished the original story, which had the effect of making my comment disappear. He failed to address the serious concerns about the new club he is proposing to set up and has disabled the comment facility. So concerned am I about the situation, that I am writing this in my own right.
Brockwell Swimmers announce the formation of a new inclusive club for lovers of all things Lido.
Having organised several successful events at Brockwell Lido, Brockwell Swimmers have now formed a club, ratified a constitution, formed a committee, opened a bank account, and now look forward to planning more aquatic fun for 2016.

Brockwell Swimmers have again been invited to enter a team for the annual Tooting Lido Heron Invitation Gala happening Sunday 20th March. The race is for all abilities and the distance is only one width. With our honour at stake this is surely a challenge we cannot refuse.
The inspirational Caitlin Davies will be reading from her excellent book Down Stream (reviewed earlier) at the Lido Café on Monday 27th July, 7pm to 8pm. Free entry on a first come basis. Signed copies of the book will also be available for purchase care of Herne Hill Books.
Brockwell Lido’s first Water Polo evening held Tuesday 7th July proved to be a great success. The event attracted a wide variety of swimmers; some experience in the game, and others complete novices like myself.
