Welcome to the Friends of Ilkley Lido

1010430_509252409128006_1456176245_n - Version 2Founded in 2008, FOIL is run for and by those who love the Lido and want to support, protect and improve this fantastic facility.

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.
