Last Thursday iDive welcomed guests to the pool including three NHS staff who took up our limited offer of a free try-dive by way of a ‘thank you’ for the work they have done, and are doing, throughout the COVID pandemic. The basic equipment was explained followed by a quick briefing and then into the pool to experience breathing under water, a first time for all of them.
One of the party said, “It was really nice to have an evening away from work and home and to be doing something completely different where they also couldn’t be contacted”. Another lady said she’d always wanted to give diving a go and was really excited and happy to be able to do so now. She was also really surprised by how much kit we have to take with us!
Well done to the try-divers, organisers and helpers on the night.
