Yes yes its time to get excited!! We are at Girton this weekend & next plus days in the week too & the BEST bit, we are at Capernwray 24th – 26th July staying at the one and only The King’s Arms Hotel Burton in Kendal – LA6 1LR. We will be running Advanced Open Water & Speciality courses only this time, if you want to join the group please let me know ASAP there is still limited space. Ok so the weeks story so far: we say huge congratulations to Andrew on becoming an EFR Instructor, what a great job & thank you team Abbie & Karl for assisting. Welcome Ash our latest Staff Instructor In training and welcome to your PADI Open Water Course Inês, Jaroslav & Amy we can’t wait to start your pool training. Oh and we had a brilliant team meeting; getting ready with all the new protocols & requirements to keep everyone as Covid safe as possible, I love ZOOM!! I also want to say a huge thank you to Hayley for spending so much time marking up all of the new school kit, it looks grand (I’d love my office back though 🙂 ) Right, back to it, loads to do before the weekend, have a brilliant week everyone, Hotch & Vic
We are getting so close now to being able to offer you open water diver training again; so the team have all been putting in some serious underwater time to prepare & definitely enjoyed a splash at Capernwray. Back at base the service centre is buzzing, so remember check your regs, BCD’s & cylinders, if they need testing ring, book an appointment & drop them in, it will be lovely to see you.
Stop the press though!! It’s time to say huge congratulations to Colin & Cameron on becoming PADI Enriched Air Divers & we say welcome to your PADI Open Water Course Ebony, Paige, Angelo, Danielle, Harry & Sam. Great work also Ian on completing your theory for PADI Dry Suit & AOW & just how to blow our socks off, Chrissy & Chris powering through their Zoom fuelled PADI IDC. The re opening of the pool is a way off yet, but eLearning studies & Zoom are perfect for these times.
Ok more good news! We are happy to say we have been preparing Girton for diving again, the dye is working in the water and conditions are settling, we will be announcing an opening date very (and I mean very) soon.
With normality restoring itself remember we have our Farnes trip in November & the amazing Philippines next year, as more trips come online remember to keep checking, don’t miss out: https://www.stellardivers.co.uk/trips-events/
Have a brilliant week everyone, Hotch & Vic
