Chestnut Sunday – 8th May
Thank you to those who helped at Chestnut Sunday in Bushy Park last weekend. The club had a stand at the event and took along Britvic to further our aim of attracting new members. A number of people left their contact details, which we be following up and there will be a free Try Dive for a lucky winner.
There was much interest at the stand in the pictures of wrecks we had taken along and these proved a good opportunity to engage prospective members about UK diving. The RIB proved to be a popular attraction (for children) and we had collection buckets for the RNLI.
Thanks to Barry Duplock, Chris Knight, Andy Kitchen, Jonathan Markwell & Dave Tresidder, who were on hand during the day to speak about the club and encourage people to leave their details with us. They were supported by Sandra, Glenn and Jo, with even little Freya handing out our publicity leaflets! Thanks also to Chris Drewett, who organised the day and towed the RIB.
Let’s hope we can convert some of this interest into new members.
