Heritage Open Day

Sandford Parks Lido opens as part of the Heritage Open Days weekend.

Open between 11am-7.30pm you will be able to explore the facility and see some areas not normally accessible by the public.  Please note that normal entrance prices apply for using the facility for swimming.

Heritage Open Days celebrates England’s fantastic architecture and culture by offering free access to properties that are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission. Every year on four days in September, buildings of every age, style and function throw open their doors, ranging from castles to factories, town halls to tithe barns, parish churches to Buddhist temples. It is a once-a-year chance to discover hidden architectural treasures and enjoy a wide range of tours, events and activities which bring to life local history and culture.

 

Volunteering and Fundraising Initiatives

Volunteers (i-Jbvgci.jpg)

If you have some spare time why not become one of our volunteers, we need help with general duties to get the lido ready to open every year or with specialist events such as Turning Back Time or our annual sporting events:

The Cheltenham Triathlon raising funds for the lido and LINC; our children's aquathlon raising funds for The Pied Piper Appeal and the lido and The Devil's Aquathlon raising funds for Cobalt Unit Appeal Fund and the lido. The GE Aviation Aquathlon raises funds solely for the lido.  We also require more specialist skills such as assisting with Heritage Talks and Tours.

If you have a little time to offer call or email us now on 01242 524430 or swim@sandfordparkslido.org.uk.

If you have a great idea for your own personal challenge why not design your own fundraising page via www.justgiving.com/spl/raisemoney and raise money for the lido at the same time!
