We’re excited to share the release of a new Lido Toolkit by Future Lidos, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Future Lidos is an informal network of projects across the UK and Ireland, dedicated to bringing the joy of outdoor swimming to more communities by restoring heritage pools and creating new lidos. From a small group formed just three years ago, it has grown to a network of more than 30 projects.

The toolkit is free to access and contains a wealth of insight assembled from a wide range of experienced pool operators and project leaders. It includes topics like environmental sustainability, inclusivity, and business development, as well as a range of evidence for the health, social and economic benefits that lidos bring.

Our Director, Andrew Lerpiniere, has thoroughly enjoyed working on the toolkit in the role of Environmental Sustainability Specialist. With the invaluable input from many lido operators, he has applied his extensive experience to help deliver a practical guide to delivering energy efficient, environmentally sustainable solutions.

We’re looking forward to seeing well-designed sustainable lidos become available to more communities across the UK!
