HSAC “star attraction” at Festival of Sport

Talking about the Haslemere Festival of Sport 2016 , Sport Haslemere chairman, Peter Lawrence, said: “One of the star attractions was Haslemere Sub Aqua Club, who had brought along a rib boat for children to clamber over and they were then shown how to work a demand valve before dunking their heads into a tank of water.”

It was a thoroughly enjoyable day for HSAC members, stationed just outside the entrance to The Edge. We were introducing lots of local children to skippering one of our dive boats, and to breathing under water! Maybe the marine life models in the bottom of the water barrel will inspire some of them to take up diving in years to come, so they will enjoy the amazing experience of watching marine creatures going about their lives on the seabed.
