Anyone fancy a Christmas Swim? Image

Anyone fancy a Christmas Swim?

Fancy a quick dip on Christmas morning?

Where: Sandford Parks Lido

When: Tuesday, December 25, 11am

Brave souls who fancy a quick dip on Christmas morning are being urged to head down to Sandford Parks Lido in Cheltenham for its traditional Christmas Day Swim.

What was started by a few American soldiers who were stationed here in World War Two has now become a huge annual event and swimmers can enjoy a quick dip in the main pool before heading home to warm up and have their Christmas dinner.

Organisers request that all swimmers arrive at the Lido by 10.30am. The swim will start at 11am and the site closes at 11.30am.

Registration can be done in advance via the Sandford Parks Lido website, or you can register on the day, but a waiver must be signed before entering the pool.

The event is free but the Lido welcomes donations. It is a not-for-profit charitable trust and every penny taken is invested back into the facility.

This event is suitable for over-18s only. Children are welcome on site to watch but must not enter the water. Please note, the water will be very cold!
