Have your say

Free swimming for pensioners almost caused a traffic jam as they queued to get in to Matlock’s Lido.

Over 100 people, aged between 65 and 82, waited patiently for the doors to open along with Bill Trippett from Derbyshire Age Concern in 1987.

After 73 years in business the Lido closed its doors for the last time last month and has been replaced by a brand-new state-of-the-art facility, Arc Leisure Matlock.
