Jesus Green Lido Season 2017 closed on the 24th September.
Season 2017 was opened on Saturday 13th May by the Mayor of Cambridge, Jeremy Benstead.
The preparation of the lido had been ongoing since the beginning of April with the maintenance team of Trever Williams and Robert Oliver putting in a massive effort to get the pool ready.
The ladies changing/shower room had a lovely refresh. The same is planned with the male changing/shower room next season.
On Friday 12th May we opened our doors to the Friends of Jesus Green Lido User Group to have a pre-opening swim from 5pm-6.30pm. Around 40 swimmers attended and all feedback was extremely positive, especially for the refurbishment of the new showers and the extended opening times (alongside triathlon bookings). The first weekend saw over 800 swimmers join us for a free open weekend.
Special mention must go to Shirley Oliver (General Manager), Helen Dwyer (Assistant Manager), Callum Lewis (Duty Manager) for all their hard work, enthusiam and commitment throughout the season!
