MAKE YOUR WEEKEND GO
WITH A BANG!
POSTED: 11th October 2017

Stuck for something to on Saturday 4th November? Why join us down at Vobster Quay for our annual celebration of nefarious individuals with pointy moustaches trying to blow up the Houses of Parliament!

We'll be filling the skies above the lake with enough bangs, pops and whistles to scare even the hardiest of pets (so please leave them at home, folks!). Best of all, the fireworks display is COMPLETELY FREE so why not bring along the family? Don't forget the sparklers or the kids will be revolting!

Fancy a cheeky swim or dive whilst you're on site? For the usual very reasonable entry fee, divers can take advantage of the late season night diving whilst swimmers can get in some laps - just make sure you're out of the water by 6pm or we'll fire off the rockets in your direction!

Our onsite catering will be serving up our usual range of tasty treats and we'll have a fully-licensed bar onsite serving a full range of alcoholic - and, for the designated drivers who drew the short straw - non-alcoholic beverages until 10pm.

There's no need to book - just mark yourself as 'GOING' on the Facebook event to help us get a better idea of numbers.

TAKE A FESTIVE
PLUNGE FOR CHARITY
POSTED: 15th September 2017

Vobster Quay's record-breaking charity Santa diving event returns on Sunday 17th December for another round of festive chortles and fundraising fun.

Run in aid of the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) and the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, this ever-popular fundraising event aims to raise sack-loads of cash for two very deserving charities.

Vobster Quay invites all our divers to grab their red pantaloons and fluffy beards - and as much festive cheer as they can muster - and head down to Vobster Quay near Mells, Somerset for a mass sponsored Santa dive in aid of charity. Since the events' inception back in the late noughties, Vobster Santas has raised over £30,000 for the RNLI.

For more information on Vobster Santas - including details on how to sign up - visit our website at [WEBLINK]

POSTED: 08th September 2017

ong>Steve Martin and Alison Gundy have reaped the rewards of their hard work over five days and nine hours of diving, with qualifying dives on their new VMS RedBare CCR. Here they are in action during ascent skills sessions and the 'victory shot' at the end of it all. It's been a privilege to update their OC tech training to the silent world of CCR diving - great dives await your persistence and application to CCR skills. Cheers, Tim



GOOD SAMARITAN
DIVERS
POSTED: 04th September 2017

Here's a tale of diver generosity needs thanking in person:

"Hi there,

I had a car accident on the Wells Road this afternoon and was very lucky that a group of folk who had been at Vobster stopped and helped me. There was a man called Jeff/Geoff who was a First Aid trainer and another man called Dazza. Several other people too, but I can't remember their names. They left once I was securely in the ambulance but I didn't get any surnames. Are you able to help me to identify them.please? I would really like to get in contact and thank them.

Anika Butler-Wyatt"

If you know who these people might be, please ask them to make contact. Cheers, Tim

Fancy seeing something different in the dark? This Thursday our friends from Linear Guidance Illumination - LGi will be at Vobster Quay Inland Diving Centre demonstrating their illuminated marker systems. Used by the police and the military, as well as many commercial organisations, maybe this is how we should mark out all our routes and features for safer low-light and dark diving conditions? Come along and see what you think! Cheers, Pete
