If I still had young grandchildren I would be furious that the Lido has been closed all summer, again!
Admittedly the beach has been brilliant in the last few weeks, and the White Cliffs. cafe is always great for morning coffee and tasty lunch time tapas! (below)
But compare the deserted Lido now left to the seagulls, with the family friendly facilities at Hove Lagoon (below)
Admittedly Hove Lagoon has more space for water sport activities and Saltdean’s park is smaller, but it’s got a play facilities and skateboarding it’s just a functioning Lido that it lacks.
But then Hove Lagoon also has Fatboy Slim’s extremely popular and fast moving cafe
Maybe Saltdean needs the magic and money of a millionaire like Fatboy Slim. He would hasten things along a bit, no doubt making the Lido facilities a bit more commercial, but better than what is currently just a ‘white elephant’!
