Hillingdon Lido – A Splash of Paradise: First up, let’s talk about Hillingdon Lido. It’s not just a swimming pool; it’s a liquid oasis! Dive into its gigantic outdoor pool, and you’ll forget all about that relentless sun.

Grab an inflatable flamingo, embrace your inner mermaid, and make waves like you’re auditioning for a water ballet.

Just don’t forget to slather on the sunscreen; you don’t want to become a lobster as the kids go back to school.

Harrow Leisure Centre – Dive In, Chill Out: If you prefer the indoors, Harrow Leisure Centre’s got you covered with not one but TWO massive indoor swimming pools. Splash around like you’re in a giant fishbowl and let your inner water-loving kid loose.

Remember, swimming is not just a sport; it’s a therapeutic summer survival tactic!

Ice cream!: Another way to beat the Harrow heat and stay cool, you’ve got to be as strategic as a penguin in the Sahara. And guess what, there’s a frozen oasis waiting for you! Baskin Robbins, with not one, but two locations to satisfy your ice cream cravings.

They’ve got shops on Uxbridge Road in Hatch End and Station Road in Harrow Town Centre – so you’re never too far from an icy delight.

Harrow Arts Centre – A Cool Haven: But wait, there’s more! Harrow Arts Centre is your salvation when you’re looking for some air-conditioned respite. They’ve got cooler air than Santa’s North Pole workshop.

And here’s the cherry on top: they’re hosting ‘Retro Future – Yesterday’s 80’s Songs – Today’s Sound’ by ‘Glitz Events’ on September 11th.

This concert is not just about groovy tunes; it’s about giving back. ‘Retro Future’ is not just a blast from the past; it’s an opportunity to make a difference in the present.

The event is all about raising funds for Dementia UK, a charity doing incredible work to support those affected by dementia.
