Christmas Day Swim
We look forward to welcoming you to Sandford Parks Lido on Friday 25th December for a quick dip in the main pool before heading home to warm up and have your Christmas dinner.
The swim will take place promptly at 11am and you will need to be at the lido gates from 10.30am to sign a disclaimer form.
The water will be extremely cold and this is an adults only event (age 17+). The event will finish at 11.30am. There is no charge to enter this event but there will be collection buckets at the entrance raising money for Sandford Lido Ltd, the charitable trust that operates the lido. Spectators are welcome. Please assist us by bringing a signed copy of our liability disclaimer form which can be found at www.sandfordparkslido.org.uk/e19-christmas-day-swim.html
