LORD Mayor of Portsmouth Cllr Frank Jonas got into the swing of things at the Hilsea lido open day.
He took part in a spot of welly wanging, which was just one of the activities on offer during the weekend.
Visitors could see the restoration work carried out by volunteers to bring the leisure area back to its former glory.
People had the chance to enjoy an exhibition depicting the lido from 1935 through to the present day.
Sabrina Richards, chairman of the Hilsea Lido Pool for the People group, said: ‘People were enjoying it and were impressed by the site. There were lots turning up who haven’t been here for a while.’
