New Links - We Go Global!

Our New Friends on Yahoo Groups

Well, maybe not exactly global - we did have a visitor from USA on our blog though ... but clearly Sandra's talent for spin and bragging is rubbing off on me: the exciting news today is that we've -joined two great Yahoo Groups devoted to lidos and outdoor pools. I've been following Oliver Merrington's Lidos History Society group for years and found it an inspiration and a brilliant source of information on lidos in the UK URL=http://uk.groups.yahoo.com/group/lidos/ . Oliver has forwarded our blog details and fundraising activities to a 'sister' yahoo group whose members are campaigning to re-open or keep open threatened lidos and pools in the UK - another amazing group of people http://groups.yahoo.com/group/poolingresources/ .

We've already had messages of support and encouragement from the groups' members and will be meeting up with members on our visits to pools and lidos.

Check out these sites and check out Oliver's lido page - it should inspire you to get out and support these beautiful pools.http://www.lidos.org.uk/

Just found you through Pooling Resources, it's great to see what you're up to. I'm a keen outdoor swimmer and involved with the Friends of Guildford Lido (I'm officially a FOGLette). If you're down south this season and fancy a dip in the THE best pool in the country (yeah, I'm biased), give me a shout and I'll meet you there.
Good luck with all you're doing.

Thank you! It's great to get feedback from a FOGlette - love the name! I've seen a picture of the lido at Guildford - it does look really beautiful ... we'll get down there one day and let you know. best wishes, nicoaa
