Chairman’s Letter May 2022

Hi Folks,

Diving season is well and truly upon us, we’ve had trips to the bay, the Isle of Man and Anglesey, and there are trips planned to Malta, Bridlington, Pembroke and Cyprus, plus many quarry weekends. So let’s all be safe. If you’d like to organise a trip anywhere and you’re not sure how, just ask and we will help you sort it out. We’ve had to cancel the summer bash as there wasn’t enough interest, but Vince is organising a curry night at the club – date to be arranged. 

I’d like to wish Katie and Paul a speedy recovery, and thank Katie for all her hard work as the Communications Officer: you’ve done a fantastic job. Also thanks to Bel for all her hard work behind the bar. I’d also like to welcome Angie Coggins to the Committee as the new Communications Officer. 

Other news: we are getting the new compressor fitted this week. Chris Mills is sorting that out – thanks Chris. We have also reviewed the Towing Levy because of the price of fuel, and have increased it to 50p per mile, to be reviewed in 3-4 months. Also, we have a levy for boat courses which is £25 – that’s the levy and the fuel. We have to have a levy to cover oil and maintenance on the boats.

Thanks for all your support.  

Dave Edwards
Chairman, BSAC Branch 5
