Final dip and dunk offered at Ilkley Lido
8:00am Thursday 19th September 2013 in News
An event at Ilkley Lido on Saturday will celebrate a record summer and give swimmers a final dip before the winter closure.
The ‘dip and dunk’, between noon and 4pm, is organised by The Friends of Ilkley Lido (FOIL) with Bradford Council. Entry is £1 and Friends will be giving away drinks and cakes.
More than 49,000 visits were made to the Lido this summer, with a week in July recording 10,800 users.
Louise Hale, chairman of FOIL, said: “We have had a great season this year, with record numbers of visitors to the Lido and wanted to do something to celebrate this and to mark the end of the summer season.
“This special opening of the Lido is open to everyone and is a chance to have a last dip.”
The Friends will have an information stall at the event on Saturday and will be signing people up for the Winter Swimming Club at the Lido from September 28 to December 15.
Anyone interested can call 07862 721737.
