Burgess Hill Lido

A Memory of Burgess Hill

My dad was the manager at this pool and I used to spend all my time here with him, until he sadly died in 1972, when I was only 8 years old. I still love swimming today and it is a very big part of my life. I would love to know if anyone has any more pictures of the pool from 1970-1972. Or if anyone remembers my father, Tom Turner.
Many thanks
Lynette Turner

I remember your Dad,Lyn and a very kind man he was,I loved the pool,it was always so clean and sparkling......I live in Paradise/Australia where the have huge Olympic size swimming pools throughout the various suburbs,I reckon that's why Aussies were always great swimmers.

Hi Steven, sorry i haven't replied sooner, I was only aware of your reply today. It was nice to hear. I really appreciate it, thank you. It will actually be my dad's birthday tomorrow too.
Hope all going well in Australia.
