Keep the Strand Lido, Gillingham open for all

This petition had 5,411 supporters

Medway Council has drastically slashed the opening hours for the Strand Lido this summer with zero public consultation. The popular lido will no longer be open during weekdays during term time.

Lido users and local residents were not consulted and information about the change to the lido's opening hours were buried deep in the council's website. Lido's are booming and are becoming increasing popular across the country. They clearly didn't get the memo! Medway Council quote cost cutting measures are needed and have not looked at other ways to keep the lido open in the week.

Medway Council do not publicise the lido and its not actively promoted which is a massive shame. Its a real gem which we are so lucky to have. Use it or lose it.

Please sign the petition to ask the council to review this shortsighted decision.
