Please help to save some of my heritage

8 Apr

I try to keep my blog focussed on the training that I’m doing (whether swimming, cycling, running, yoga or other exercise) or my diet, but today I’m posting about something a bit different.

Jubilee Pool

Today I want to write about the Jubilee Lido in Penzance, Cornwall. I first blogged about it when I visited last summer and completed an aquathlon there: https://fatgirltoironman.wordpress.com/2013/09/06/swimming-cycling-and-running-in-cornwall/ and then I blogged about it again when the UK suffered devastating storms earlier this year: https://fatgirltoironman.wordpress.com/2014/02/18/finally-back-to-blogging/

The Jubilee Lido has a special place in my heart for many reasons and I will be just one member of the community who will be deeply upset if this beautiful outdoor pool cannot be restored for future generations to enjoy it.

I’m appealing to everyone who reads my blog to sign a petition asking the local Council to match funding from other sources to help save this beautiful Art Deco pool: https://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/cornwall-council-save-the-jubilee-pool-in-penzance-by-providing-match-funding-for-the-application-to-the-coastal-communities-fund#share
