October already!!

Project Aware 2011Wow, where has the year gone!  We have been so busy the blog hasnt been updated for ages so here is a quick run down on what we have been up to!!

Way back in April we had a great time with the Underwater Easter Egg hunt. The star prize was won by Little H, he was lucky enough to find the hidden egg which gave him a day diving with the shark in Hastings aquarium, photos of the Easter activities are on the main site gallery and photos of the aquarium shark dive will be posted very shortly. Also in April we celebrated the Royal Wedding with a lovely hog roast BBQ and a simulated underwater wedding!

During the Summer we added a few extra attractions to the lake, we started work on the confined area, extended the jetty and even found time to enjoy some great diving.  Big thank you to all the staff, divers and friends who have given up their free time to help out.

July we went off to visit the seals in the Farne Islands, the weather was excellent and we saw lots of playful seals on every dive, photos are on the main site.
September was our Project Aware clean up weekend.  We managed to clear 5 skip loads of rubbish from the lake including washing machines, cookers, push bikes, motorcycles and other weird and wonderful things! We managed to raise lots of money for Project Aware. Thanks to Oonas Divers for helping out, organising the BBQ and supplying some great prizes (see photos on the Oonas Divers site  http://www.oonasdivers.com/news/3011-nemes-project-aware-weekend), thanks also to Kent Tooling and Phil and Jans embroidery designs for supplying raffle prizes and  making sure the weekend was a success.

Work has now started on our new dive centre, the car park has been extended and the village green is now open so friends and family can take a walk round the lake and enjoy the wonderful views.

So… if you havent visited us for a while we think you will be amazed at the changes.  We still have lots more work to do but everything is moving along nicely.  If you have any free time and would like to help out there is always something going on so give us a call or drop into the dive centre.

See you soon
Dave and Paula
