Today, we’re celebrating our commitment to sustainability at Sandford Parks Lido.

We are continuing to strive towards reducing emissions, cutting waste, and safeguarding water, whilst also preserving the historic charm and cherished experiences of our beloved Lido. 

This winter we have repaired a leak in our children’s pool, installed inverters on our heritage pumps and installed pipe work so we can divert water away from the fountain at night and go directly to the pool, thus reducing heat loss.

And thanks to the Sports England Swimming Pool Support Fund and support from CBC’s Cheltenham Zero Community Grant, we’re set to achieve the third stage of our decarbonisation plan at Sandford Parks Lido.

With this funding, we’ll be purchasing a new pool cover for the children’s pool and installing solar PV panels in the Lido car park. 

But that’s not all…

We’re also committed to enhancing energy efficiency with EV charging points and improvements for pedestrian and cyclist safety and accessibility. 

Your support is crucial in making Sandford Parks Lido a beacon of eco-friendly innovation. To get involved and show your support towards a greener, more sustainable future for Sandford Parks Lido, view and comment on our planning application by clicking the link in our bio.
