Year’s lido membership for community champion

Fusion Lifestyle, the charity that manages Brockwell Lido, is offering a year’s free leisure membership to a “community champion” and seeking nominations for who it should be.

“If you know a volunteer, a fundraiser, a sports coach, or a member of the community who deserves recognition, and the chance to take a bit of time for themselves at the centre, we’re honouring your unsung heroes,” Fusion said.

“At Brockwell Lido they will be able to enjoy swimming, the gym, group exercise classes and more, all right on their doorstep.

“With friendly staff on hand, they will be welcomed and encouraged as they find an activity they love to help with their fitness and wellbeing.

Winners will be invited to a Fusion Big Event Day at the Lido on Saturday 30 September to be presented with their prize.

The event will see the Lido open its doors to the public to enjoy tasters of the activities it offeers and to take part in its new “Sportaneous Challenge”.

Fusion Lifestyle CEO Anthony Cawley said: “We are a nation of unsung heroes and at Fusion we think it’s time some of the country’s community champions were recognised and rewarded for their efforts.

“We can’t wait to hear about some of the inspirational people out there giving back to their communities and to play our part in giving them a small thank you.”

To make a nomination complete Fusion’s online form and submit a nomination by Friday 22 September.

Terms and conditions apply.

Fusion said details of its Big Event Day and Sportaneous Challenge will be available in the next few weeks on its website and socials.

Brockwell Lido Users Group recently complained about conditions and cleanliness at the Lido, saying parts of the lido are deteriorating and opening hours had been shortened.

Fusion said it was carrying out a “significant upgrade” on the lido’s showers and changing rooms, two of the most complained about areas.


  1. Have you seen the state of the lIdo (that’s if there are enough lifeguards to open)?!?

    You’re giving away memberships. Yet not refunding cancelled sessions for members that have paid. And not responding to any enquiries.

    Even MP Helen Hayes has been investigating the complaints.
