Last night was the Chippy Lido’s annual Auction of Promises, hosted, as usual, by former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson.
Whilst the national newspapers and broadcast TV concentrated on Clarkson’s career in their coverage of the event – see the coverage in the Telegraph, Daily Mail and Sky News – in Chippy, locals have concentrated on his long-term support for our town’s open-air swimming pool.

And here are a few of the comments from those in Chippy on Twitter:
Well done to all involved with the Lido for their efforts. If you would like to fundraise or help the Lido in any way, contact them via their website.
