Beccles Lido is a great day out for families with young children and it reopens for the 2013 season today (May 25th 2013).  Beccles is a great success.  After the local council let the pool get ever more run down they eventually sold it to a local community group.  The group raised money to repair and modernise the pool.  They made it more environmentally friendly by installing solar panels thanks to a grant they won from British Gas.  Now Beccles Lido goes from strength to strength.  There is a toddlers paddling pool, a learners pool and the main pool with a diving board.  They also have a cafè for hot and cold drinks and food.

If you haven’t visited Beccles Lido – Open AIr Swimming Pool before I highly recommend it.
