Many Try-a-dive vouchers were given as Christmas gifts, the new scuba dive course is underway and a group of nine students has signed up for a six-week snorkelling course aimed at eight to 12 years-olds, though it is open to anyone.

New scuba diving courses, for anyone from 12 to adult, are available on Sunday afternoons. All new members receive free training and free loan of equipment during their basic training.

For details on joining the club and/or learning to dive, visit Stourport Sports Centre between 3pm and 5pm, and ask for John Carmichael, or call him on 01562 753637 weekdays, from 9am until 6pm. You could also visit the website at
