Many happy Lido memories

Like Les Davies I have many happy memories of Matlock Lido, having been a member for many years, but the new Arc leisure centre is absolutely fabulous, and will create a lot a revenue in the town, and for the children in the local Derbyshire Schools it will be fantastic for swimming lessons.

I must admit I passed the old lido the other day, and was sad thinking of all the good times spent there.

One of my son’s regularly swam with the swimming club, and is following this event with great interest from the other side of the world.

He was an active member of the swimming club, and regularly swam in galas, and is following this event with great interest.

I wish all the friendly and efficient staff at the Arc, who I have got to know over the years, all the very best for the future in this absolutely stunning new leisure centre.
