this year, lots of landfolk in tooting are getting together to make amazing things for a carnival procession from rubbish. the mermaid is participating in making the south london swimming club’s lido float. the main thing she is working on is a plastic coral. she also teaches landfolk how to make them on weekends at the lido. the float will have an actual mermaid on it – a mermaid elder is in charge of the swimming club!
on the actual parade, which takes place this coming sunday (4 July), the mermaid will disguise as a green lido door!
