TS, TWICKENHAM A great and sound idea to really rejuvenate the riverside. Self funding and fully costed so minimal cost to the local tax payers. JA, TWICKENHAM, UNITED KINGDOM I would like to see more in Twickenham than pubs and charity shops. GR,TWICKENHAM, UNITED KINGDOM I am a local resident that would use this facility. SN, TWICKENHAM, UNITED KINGDOM I'd really like to see a lido in Twickenham and it would be an amazing feature for the riverside which seems to have strong financial support. MB, TWICKENHAM, UNITED KINGDOM At last something positive being developed for the people of Twickenham. It has been idle for far too long! SD, TWICKENHAM, UNITED KINGDOM It will bring a whole new lease of life to the area and generate business. We need this as the town centre is starting to die and shops are closing down.
