Saltdean Lido CIC:
A story of two halves ... This is a community project to restore Brighton’s last Historic pool. It’s owned by Brighton & Hove County Council (BHCC) who don’t have enough funds to restore it themselves.
1. The volunteers have already found funding to restore the pool and it opened last year. It’s now the warmest lido in the U.K. and biggest pool in Brighton.
2. Behind the hoarding the building is crumbling. The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) was set up to help buildings of this nature (which councils cannot afford to restore by themselves).
The volunteers now need people who care about community resources to help unlock the HLF and other grants.
All supporters need to do is pledge a donation, which won’t come out of their account until the big funding is in place.
Without these public pledges the project won’t happen! https://www.spacehive.com/saltdean-lido
