There have been two meetings of the swimming pool steering group since the last council meeting. At the meeting on 22nd June, the form and composition of the groups was discussed and the name Brightlingsea Lido Action Group was agreed as a working name for the group. This gives the group an identity and easily remembered acronym in BLAG, which has been printed on t-shirts and promotional material. The action group continues to thrive and have positive meetings with enthusiastic volunteers. Members of BLAG were out in force on the opening day of the pool on 15th July which was a success with over a 100 people through the door in the first hour.
The group is moving forward now to look at possible asset transfer and the capacity to manage the facility in short, medium and long term.
