It was a typical English summer weekend: Glorious sunshine one day followed by cold overcast rain. But rain didn’t stop play.

There was a terrific turn out of members and volunteers, an exceptional variety of helmets, pumps and equipment to try out and plenty of enthusiasm to go round. 

Thank you to all our volunteers who turned up to help and to make it such a successful day and to all those who tried out the equipment (including some of the sports diver visitors to Stoney Cove who showed and interest and even tried out the open helmet).

Here is a short taster of some of the equipment we dived over the weekend.
