Brockwell Lido Users group BLU is holding its annual general meeting and a forum this Saturday ( 24 September) beginning at 10am sharp at the Lido. Coffee, croissants and cake will be available from 9.30.
Every user – and non-users – can attend and share views and opinions. You need to sign up for the BLU newsletter to become a member (which is not the same as Lido membership itself).
Representatives of Lambeth council and Fusion, the company that runs the Lido, are due to be present.
BLU, founded in 2001, campaigned to keep the Lido open and has about 1,500 members. Recent AGMs have attracted about 80 people. BLU is funded entirely by voluntary donations and subscriptions and sales of BLU merchandise.
