Friends of Droitwich Spa Lido help get popular pool ready for its reopening

Tristan Harris 27th Jul, 2020 Updated: 27th Jul, 2020

VOLUNTEERS from Friends of Droitwich Spa Lido (FODSL) have been helping staff get the pool ready for its big reopening tomorrow.

The group have bought more than 50 plants to help improve the look of the Lido.

FODSL chairman Suzi Wood said: “We are so excited the Lido is opening, and the team wanted to help Wychavon Leisure.

“I must thank Debbie Holdsworth for sourcing the plants and kindly bringing them over for us to plant.”

The saltwater pool has been shut since September and was unable to open during the lockdown.

The Government announced last month that outdoor pools could open on July 11.

But it takes Wychavon Leisure, which runs the Lido on behalf of the district council, a month to get it ready for visitors.

Suzi added: “After the last few months it is great people can enjoy ‘Droitwich by the sea’ by experiencing the only inland saltwater Lido in the country and enjoy summer safely.”

The reopening has been supported by Wychavon District Council who have underwritten any potential losses from a short season.

Slots at the pool can be reserved online two days in advance.
