Wednesday Club Night – Annual General Meeting

It is the first Wednesday of the month next week and that means it is club night. This month it is time for the Annual General Meeting, it is an opportunity for you to hear a summary from the committee members on the status of the club and ask questions.

We are still looking for people to take up the post of Membership and Social secretary. If you are interested please contact It is a chance for you to give something back to the club and generally speaking does not take more than a couple of hours a month.

Autumn Diving Tour:

October also marks the start of our autumn diving season. On Sunday the 17th of October we will be in Chepstow. All certification levels are welcome and as an extra incentive to have some fun we would like people to come in Halloween themed fancy dress. There will be prizes available for the best dressed!

Next stop on the tour is Wraysbury on Sunday the 14th of November. This is a great opportunity to practice some of those skills that you have been meaning to practice all year and although there is no booking required we would still like to know if you plan to come along so we can ensure somebody is available to buddy you and to ensure that you are entered into the Autumn Tour Bonus Prize competition.

For the final stop we have Vobster Quay on Sunday the 19th December.  Scuba Santa is an annual event organised at Vobster Quay in Somerset to raise money for the RNLI. The aim is to dive in a Santa outfit. Last year a new world record was set for 153 Santas in the water simultaneously. This year the aim is to set a new world record. The Club will provide mince pies and 'Sherry' for Santa and carrots for Rudolph. Please join in this fun event be part of a world record and raise money for a very good cause.
