The Lido Ladies

Jessica Walker and Nicola Foster are two fifty-something ladies who love to swim – especially in Lidos.

A family tragedy left Jessica (56) suffering from chronic anxiety until she found an oasis of calm in a busy world in the form of her local Lido. After years away, she returned to the pool and what started as a quick dip, became almost a daily meditation.

Nicola (55) swam competitively in her youth, but after living behind a corporate desk, reached a point where her joints began to creak. Following some encouragement and persuasion from Jessica, Nicola got back into the water.. The pair have not looked back since – swimming and laughing in equal measures, resulting in both their physical and mental health being in the best shape of their lives.
