Hi

I am going to come along tomorrow to the swim after parkrun ( not sure which one)  , It will be the first time at the Lido ( Apart from breakfast on occasion!) is there lockers? is it cash only? can I wear my wetsuit? and is there a floundering whale speed? ( Still learning) I will also need to buy a windrush swim hat.....

Thanks 

Sarah

No speed limit - mac or min and Charles is cycling to Brighton and back so won't be seeing if he can do 43mph to outpace his sharks

Lockers yes but if it is very sunny they get full quick and only take OLD one pound coins

Wednesday it was too hot to wear a wetsuit in the Lido

You win friends if you bring cake for after the swim but have to hide it from Cafe staff

You don't need a Windrush cap - I might have a spare which I'll bring to Peckham Parkrun if I find it
Hi Sarah, awesome you'll be heading down tomorrow!! As Tony said, it's a pretty chilled out session. We have one lane and no coach so people just swim up and down and have a chat.
You don't need to queue to get into the lido, just show your membership card to the staff and then they let you in. It's free too!!! People just pile their bags at the end of the lane, but there are some lockers as Tony said.

We always have brunch after in the lido cafe and they are happy for us to bring a cake as we always buy their hot drinks and brunches.

I won't be there tomorrow but plenty will. I'm not sure if Toby will be here with hats, but I think the Monday and Thursday coaches are also selling them.

Have an amazing swim :-)

Hi, I have some swim caps and will be down for swim and brunch so if you bring 3 pounds cash you can buy one from me. Cheers

Great, Thank you Emily

Thanks Laura, I'm looking forward to it. I was meant to swim at the docks tonight but the traffic was really bad.

Is anyone able to bring yellow swim caps to the swim tomorrow morning? I still need to buy one.

Thanks,
