The Lido’s future is far from secure and significant funding is still required to restore and preserve the main Lido building, and transform it into a leisure facility, community hub and tourist destination of which Saltdean can once again be proud.
The poolside café takes centre-stage in the Lido's iconic ‘rotunda’ – the eye-catching, curved front of the building designed to resemble the bow of an ocean liner. Its restoration and reinstatement as a profit-making enterprise will be the first major step towards safeguarding the building’s sustainability and survival and survival.
We need to raise £100,000 before the 31st May to ensure when our Heritage Lottery Fund application is assessed we have demonstrated local and national support for the project. This will then release over £4million to the project. So raising £100,000 is essential - spread the word and help us restore the entire lido site.
