Welcome to the Friends of Ilkley Lido

We aim to provide a strong voice for Lido users and to play a leading role in promoting and improving the Lido for the benefit of the local and wider community.

We work with Bradford Council and many other organisations and groups, raise funds, organise events and activities to broaden use of the Lido, link with other local friends groups and outdoor pools around the country to share ideas, help to publicise and promote the Lido, input to future planning and much more.

 The Lido is now shut until May but we do still have the….Winter Swim Club1011547_483488858435125_1302450096_n
