WHAT DOES BLU DO?
BLU is the official user group for all lido users. Whether you use the pool, gym or classes, we're here so that your voice is heard. Since September 2001 we've been working to make sure the lido stays open and available to all.
DOES BLU RUN THE LIDO?
Brockwell Lido is owned by Lambeth Council and run under a long lease by Fusion Lifestyle, a professional leisure centre operator that runs a number of sites across London and the south of England. You can find their page for Brockwell Lido here with all the information you need to come and use the facilities.
HOW DO I FIND OUT ABOUT LIDO OPENING TIMES AND PRICES?
Fusion publishes its timetable for the lido every month. You can find out about prices, timetables and opening times here.
DO I ACTIVATE MY GYM MEMBERSHIP OR BOOK CLASSES THROUGH YOU?
No, we are only a group representing users of the centre. For anything to do with your membership of the site, buying tickets or booking classes, you need to go through Fusion directly.
HOW DO I COMPLAIN?
You can complain or provide feedback to Fusion face to face or via their tracking survey. BLU can also help escalate major or recurring issues. For more details please go here.
HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER OF BLU?
All users, aged 16 or over, of facilities at the Brockwell Lido, including those who swim, use the gym, attend the classes, use the spa and attend Whippersnappers’ activities are eligible to become members. To submit your request to join please click here.
HOW DO I BECOME A BLU COMMITTEE MEMBER?
All nominees for the BLU committee must have been a member of BLU for at least the prior six months before nomination.
Committee members are voted in at the Annual General Meeting.
However, from time to time new members are also co-opted, whereby their nomination will be subject to voting by committee members. As with other members standing for committee roles, they are then required to be voted in at the next AGM
WHAT IS THE BROCKWELL LIDO STEERING GROUP?
Fusion's lease requires it to engage with the local community and work with a community organisation called the Brockwell Lido Steering Group (BLSG). BLSG's role is recognised in the Community Service Agreement between Fusion and Lambeth.
WHO IS ON THE BROCKWELL LIDO STEERING GROUP?
Membership of the BLSG is made up of BLU members and local organisations.
The Committee members are the following:
5 Lido Users, drawn from the BLU committee
2 park organisations (Friends of Brockwell Park and Brockwell Park Community Partners)
1 residents' organisation (Effra Housing Co-operative)
2 community organisations (Herne Hill Society and Herne Hill Forum)
