A few regular swimmers have been talking about starting a Lido Bookclub for the winter months. If you’d be interested in joining us for some gentle book chat over a cuppa or a pint once a month between now and next Spring, email Becky@Beckyallen.org
With Jesus Green Pool closing for the season at 6.30pm on Sunday 23 Sept., Some of our regular swimmers are having an informal swim in the Ouse near Over. A map of the location is here
Come and hear Rob Fryer, veteran wild swimmer, talk about his comprehensive guide to European swimming spots on Friday 14 September at 5.30pm at Jesus Green Lido. The talk is free but standard Lido entrance charges apply.
18 years of meticulous research, 30+ countries, 1700 places to swim. Soup and sandwiches available.
Many thanks Alex

We will be having a sea swim followed by fish & chips and a walk along the seafront.
Alex is planning to meet for an informal swim in the River Ouse and a picnic lunch at Overcote 12 noon on Sunday 1st October. It’s a short 1.5-mile walk from the Swavesey request stop on the guided busway.
From the village of Over, take the lane (Chain Road) signposted from a corner near the church and follow straight to the river, approx. 2 miles. Plenty of parking. Bring hot drinks, picnic and picnic rug, warm jumpers, swimming things. There’s a small concrete slipway good for getting into the water.
