SIR: Following the national coverage of the reopening of the successful Guildford Lido, I would echo an earlier letter in your paper and test support through the Chronicle for an outdoor swimming pool/lido, which is just what we need here in Winchester.

Having grown up in Cambridge with the still current outdoor swimming pool at Jesus Green and swimming in the Cam, Winchester would benefit from a healthy outdoor pool. Couldn’t the lid be taken off the River Park pool?
