Thank you for your continued support to Charlton Lido & Lifestyle Club over the winter period, while some of our facilities were closed. The warmer weather is fast approaching, and following a careful review of the pool usage last spring (and taking into consideration feedback from our previous 2 customer forums), we are pleased to announce the pool opening times to commence from Monday 3rd April.

Monday 6.30am-12noon & 2pm-8pm

Tuesday 7am-12noon & 2pm-8pm

WednesdayFriday 7am-12noon

Weekends 9am-5pm

These times will be further reviewed in May in preparation for our full summer programme from June 2017.

Charlton Champion reader Rosemary Leeke has been in touch with plans to start a user group for Charlton Lido:

“Back in the autumn of 2013, a group of committed Lido swimmers held an initial meeting to discuss setting up a user group under the banner Friends of Charlton Lido; lots more expressed an interest but weren’t able to attend the meeting. 

“The consensus, both of those who attended the meeting and of those responding via the Charlton Champion website, was that a group would be beneficial.  However, at that time there weren’t enough people able to commit to getting it off the ground, and there was a hope that the full reopening of the Lido with the new gym and café would increase usage and address many of the concerns that were being expressed at the time.

“Three years on it is clear that many of the same issues still continue to surface on a regular basis, so perhaps the time is now right to return to the proposal of establishing a Friends group to try to find a constructive way of tackling these.  Informal conversations in the pool and the changing rooms suggest that lots of regulars would support the idea – so let’s try and make it happen!”
