There was no diving at the weekend thanks to the sandstorms blowing through the region. Peter and Connie attempted to go to the east coast but even this was aborted.
Last Tuesday was the Dive Club AGM which was well attended this year. The minutes will be circulated but it’s worth repeating Chairman Mike Dalton’s thanks to all those committee members who have put the work in to keep the club going. I would also add our thanks to Mike himself. A couple of items to highlight: Firstly, I am stepping down as Diving Officer this year in favour of Geoff Patch. I’ve done it for a few years now and it’s time for a change. Geoff is more than capable and as a son of Ilford will maintain the claret and blue heart of the club (which admittedly might be disputed by some). Secondly, Mike Anthony’s huge efforts as Boats Officer over 17 years were recognised by the award of Honorary Life Membership. Well deserved sir! And it was the eve of a very special birthday - photos below.
