Comments and Participation
A comment of three words or three paragraphs will add a bonus to the site and will be very welcome.
We all must have memories, good and bad, of our days at the lido. Any reminiscences of funny escapades will be amusing to relive I’m sure. Also the embarrassing moments when water laden woolly bathers are left behind and sinking as the swimmer gained pace!
The jam sandwiches, the flasks of tea, jam sponge and ice creams all add to the excitement of a day out at the lido.
Of course most of the lidos in their heyday were unheated relying on sunshine which….always seemed to be part of lovely days spent at the lido. But…when the sun rested behind stormy clouds boy oh boy it was C-O-L-D. Today of course this brrrh of a reminiscence wouldn’t be out of place as the emphasis is very much on cold water swimming. Trips to the med. have been substituted by trips to icelandic areas, added to which one stays in a nice cosy ice hotel!
If you find lidos or baths have not been covered on this site “missing lidos” please give a mention and add your information. Others may be jogged into adding more. I will add that the website will be updated as best as possible. If I need correcting where I may have “got it wrong” – please don’t hesitate to let me know.
If you prefer to email me (email@example.com) additional information rather than use the daunting comments box system please do and I will transfer. (It’s all secure and your email is kept between you and I only)
Whilst on this note I have “closed” my index of Lidos on the site.
I’d prefer you to visit the “join up” page where you will get full access to the listed lidos in the index in the sidebar, also you will be able to add and discuss your memories on any of the lidos at the end of the appropriate lido pages. These and recent comments will be seen in the sidebar, and will only be visible to users (logged in) members of the site.
Meanwhile here are just a few of previous comments from visitors.
Finally I don’t want to present myself, or this website, and especially all these lovely past lidos, in a clinical fashion. Goodness this would contradict the fun of it all!
