40th anniversary party

Cutting the cake

The longest serving and the youngest qualified diver cut the cake

Members past and present were reunited on Saturday as the club celebrated 40 years of diving. There were some fascinating old diving artefacts on dispaly, along with a collections of photographs of past club antics. I think it’s fair to say that some of the participants may not have been too pleased to have everyone reminded of what type of shorts they wore in the 70s, or  hair they had in the 80s!

It was a great evening all round. A brief and entertaining history of the club was given by members who had joined in each of the four decades since it came into being, beginning with founding member Keith Bond. A great spread of food was laid, and, of course, there was a birthday cake!

Here’s to another four decades of diving!
