Winter Solstice swim at Waterside Pool

THE Winter Solstice was celebrated with a candlelit carol concert, followed by a midnight open-air dip at the Waterside Pool, Ryde.

Around 40 people, supporters of the pool for the past two years, who helped save it from closure, were invited to the special event last Saturday.

The choir, Voices of the IW, conducted by Linda Filby-Borrett, performed a selection of carols beside the pool, which was illuminated by 300 candles.

The midnight finale, on what turned out to be a clear evening, was an opening of the pool roof, which encouraged many to take a swim.
