Continuing from my last post about events that PADI are supporting, I would like to bring your attention to Scuba Pride 2018!
Scuba Pride which is taking place at Vivian Quarry in Parc Padarn, Llanberis on the 21st of July. (Please click here for more information). Also, there is NUPG Scuba Pride Photo Competition taking place on the 22nd of July.
Vivian Quarry is in a prime location to venture out to the stunning Snowdonia National Park. Duttons divers is a PADI Five Star Instructor Development Centre and a Project AWARE 100% Partner Centre based in North Wales.
Speaking with PADI Course Director Clare Dutton (Vivian Quarry and Duttons divers), they have 12 stands in total who are already confirmed. They will also have the face painting, bbq, competitions and will also have a mini ‘fairground’ – coconut shy, other small games around the quarry for fun.
Throughout the day they will be offering various try dives – discover scuba, discover the Menai (The Menai Strait is a narrow stretch of shallow tidal water about 25 km long, which separates the island of Anglesey from the mainland of Wales), Sidemount diving, Full Face Mask and Twinsets.
Hopefully, manufacturers maybe offering trials of their equipment and will have slots in the training cage we have on site.
Clare has said that they will have some t-shirts that have been designed for the scuba pride event. If you would like to purchase one, please let her know. They are £15 each with profits going to LGBT North Wales.
The team at Vivian Quarry are excited about the event and to be supporting the LGBT community in Scuba diving. There have been lots of emails from various groups including the chairman of both LGBT North Wales and GLUG UK that have been advertising the event.
It is great to be able to support this event and PADI will be there to help make the event memorable.
