Windermere Debris Dive

Yesterday ProScuba took part in a mammouth event in the Lake district. Over 300 divers, 200 hundred land volunteers collecting rubbish from lake Windermere. An idea by by Paul Rose, explorer & TV Presenter got this all moving. So we joined him and all the others to do our bit.

I was not diving Very Happy but was volunteering my services as one of the two MEDICS providing emergency cover. But I was not even required for a plaster!

The area was divided up, I was based at the the most remote loacation. Cockshott point was our bit for two dives. Thank you you to the National trust for letting me drive right up to the shore.

Here are few pictures of the day - sorry I've no underwater images









TV Crews covered the event. Here is the ITV news reports on what was happening. Look out for people you know. Can't miss me! Embarassed

As reported a truly fantastic day. My buddy was Gen we did retrieve 2 mesh bags full of rubbish and an umbrella so a good day for a worth while cause. Sorry no underwater pics but here are a few above shots.




























Well done to Paul Rose for creating the event and watch out for the documentary, I believe it is also on the One show tonight.

Thanks Smudge for driving hugs hugs hugs
Thanks Gen for being my Buddy
