Hilsea Lido Pool for the People Trust is a Company Limited by Guarantee (reg no 6940781) and Registered Charity (reg no 1133714) managed by a board of trustees who are supported by trust members, volunteers, supporters, donors and via partnership working. This is a community project and the community are encouraged to get involved.
Because of the nature of this project the board of trustees are very hands-on. Funds are scarce and therefore the only people employed by the trust at present are qualified lifeguards and a very loyal and hardworking administrator who gets paid for a few hours each week (but contributes far more!).
HLPP Trust has a very loyal team of volunteers who work incredibly hard (in all weathers) to help maintain and improve the site, plan & prepare for the future, provide operational support and keep this project on track.
New faces are always welcome & people are invited to contribute as little or as much as they want, be it professional skills, basic volunteering, donations, fundraising initiatives or just ideas. Taking part can consist of just an hour or two or on a long-term basis, it’s all a matter of choice.
Together we have achieved a massive amount, there is still lots to do – Get involved, you might enjoy it!
