Hi neighbours in SE23!
In 1987 the Peckham Lido was demolished, as were so many others across the UK.
A group of locals now want to rebuild the lido on the same site, the northern end of the Rye.
This is a community led project with local MP Harriet Harman's support. Southwark Council have also offered in principle support too.
Now it's down to us to raise initial funds to develop the design with the community. We've chosen architects Studio Octopi www.octopi.co.uk (founders of Thames Baths, a floating lido for the Thames) to help us prepare a pack of information that will get us funding to submit for planning and build this beautiful new lido.
If you're a swimmer, missing a heated outdoor lido (like London Fields) please do consider pledging via www.spacehive.com/Peckham-lido or sharing amongst friends who do swim.
If you're a fan of actor James Norton then you might want to look at our Facebook or Twitter pages...!
Peckham Lido team.
