Winter plan as Ilkley Lido closes after summer success
5:00pm Friday 4th October 2013 in Local news
Ilkley Lido is now closed to the general public after a record-breaking summer, but will be used for the Winter Swimming Club being organised by the Friends of Ilkley Lido (FOIL) and Bradford Council.
This started on Saturday and will run until December 15. It offers members the opportunity to swim in the Lido twice a week during this time.
“We are already starting to plan for next season and have lots of ideas for activities and events, but we are always open to more suggestions and feedback on the Lido,” said Louise Hale, chairman of FOIL.
“Our membership has increased significantly over the last year and we now have more than 170 members, all keen to see this fantastic facility maintained, improved and used by the community as a whole. We will be working hard over the winter months, in partnership with Bradford Council, to make sure that we build on the success of this season.”
