Well March has seen the most varied weather so far, we have had everything from glorious sunshine to hail and even snow! Whatever the weather we are still busy planning fun events and training, looking ahead April will be an exciting month.
Our March social event, Greyhound Racing, sold out very quickly. Sorry if you couldn’t get a ticket but April’s event is now available, so please book asap to avoid disappointment. On Friday 25th April we are going back to the 80’s with a School Disco! Join us for Aprils Social event at The King Charles Hotel, Gillingham. Enjoy a yummy 3 course meal, 80’s tribute act and Disco the night away. School Uniforms optional or maybe dress as your favourite 80’s pop star! £29.50 per person. Call us on 0750 762 4911 or pop into the dive centre to book. Everyone welcome 🙂
Clocks spring forward at the end of this month which means longer days and Summers just around the corner. There is still time to get in a night dive and we are running Night Specialty courses (or Adventure dives) on Wednesday 2nd, 9th or 16th April, let us know asap if you would like to book.
Summer opening hours start on Tuesday 1st April so we will be open from 10am – 5pm weekdays and 9am – 5pm weekends, with a late night Wednesdays until 9pm but please book to avoid a wasted journey. The lake wont be open late on Wednesday 23rd April but we have a very special presentation evening instead, see details below.

UNDERWATER EASTER EGG HUNT
EASTER MONDAY 21st April, the Easter bunny will be paying us a visit again this year and hiding Easter Eggs in the lake!… Lots of prizes, but can you find them? There will be the usual fun and games on land for kids. Underwater Easter Egg hunt will start at 9:30am, the prize list will include lots of surprises and not just chocolate eggs. Entry cost will be the normal lake entry of £9.00 plus a £2.00 donation to Project Aware. Fun for all the family, children (and adults) dressed as bunnies will receive a free gift, there will be a free prize draw, games and a land based Easter Egg hunt for non-divers.
With the lake temperature currently around 9 deg we are hoping to start swim inductions over the Easter weekend. This is of course weather dependant and with the weird weather we have been having who can tell what will happen so if you are hoping to come in for an induction please call the week before Easter to confirm temperatures and hopefully book yourself in.
SOUTH AFRICA PRESENTATION EVENING
Fancy a trip of a lifetime to South Africa? Well we have a very exciting trip planned for November 2015. If diving with Sharks, dolphins, Seals, Manta Rays, whales and turtles appeals to you, then this is the trip for you! If a safari with a chance to see the big 5 appeals to you then this is the trip for you! If being on a beach in the evening as giant turtles come up on the sands to lay their eggs appeals to you, then this is the trip for you! If watching whales breach and perform acrobatic displays, or being on a beach full of penguins appeals to you, then this is the trip for you! If you are a diver, this is probably the best trip you will ever go on! If you are a non-diver who loves wildlife, this is the trip for you! If you like great food, being totally spoilt and experiencing things you can only dream of, you need to come along to our presentation evening on Wednesday 23rd April to find out why you need to be on this trip of a lifetime! So, what are you waiting for call us to book and find out more about this amazing adventure. Presentation starts at 7:00pm in The Village Hall, Holborough Lake. You must book in advance so call now 0750 762 4911 to make sure you don’t miss out!
