UPDATE OCTOBER 2nd The times below have since been further amended, with the pool remaining open on Fridays, and closing on Thursdays; the cafe will also close on Tuesdays and Thursdays. See the lido website for details.
An update on the Lido website brings news of reduced opening hours for the pool through October:
The October Pool Opening hours will be as follows :
Additionally, from this week the pool will close at 8.30pm, rather than 9.30pm, on Wednesdays.
Meanwhile, London Fields Lido (also operated by GLL) looks to be maintaining its standard opening hours year-round, while also benefiting from investment in floodlights and underwater lighting to improve evening swimming.
There’s a Customer Forum taking place at Charlton Lido on 16th September to discuss the opening hours and other issues, with the centre’s management. We’re told invites have gone out to Lido members by email, and that the event has been advertised in the reception area. This particular member didn’t receive the email, and a number of readers have reported the same, so – if you are a member – it may be worth checking that you haven’t opted out (or been opted out of) email communications from GLL.
If you can’t make the meeting, and would like to have a say, we suggest emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your feedback in advance (and let us know what you think in the comments box below!).
