Helping out as a volunteer
Hilsea Lido is a community run pool.
Between June and September volunteers are needed to welcome families and to help look after the site during the family swimming sessions.
If you can offer two or more hours a fortnight, either on a regular weekday (3pm-7.30pm) or weekend (11.30am-7pm), please do get in touch.
Early mornings: Tues & Thurs 6.30am-8.30am
Lunchtimes: Tues, Thurs & Fri 12noon-2.30pm
Check we’re open before coming to the lido
We have a shortage of lifeguards at the moment which means sometimes we cannot open at short notice.
Please check here or on our Facebook page before making your way to the lido.
Hilsea Lido is a family friendly, community owned open air swimming pool. The 67m long x 4.5m deep unheated swimming pool is on a large site that is undergoing renovation through community involvement – please note that this means that things can only happen when opportunities arise & at times this means that progress appears to be slower than some would like. The latest addition is a 2m diving platform!
There is plenty of space for lounging & leisure, visitors are welcome to bring chairs for comfort. There are refurbished changing rooms & toilets on site.
Entry is dependent upon demand and there are restrictions on unaccompanied children, for further information please contact email@example.com
