    Our sea dive was cancelled today :drowning:

    So @jps and I rock up at Holborough today to get some barometric therapy and do some skills, only to discover it's closed due to building works. Apparently it's open if you pre-book and for courses, but not if you just rock up.

    This is likely to be for most of this year (2018) unless the developers get a wiggle on.

    Fortunately Buckland is open so we got our dive in despite the 3 degree water!

    I do feel sorry for Holborough/Nemes Academy as there's a load of development happening in that estate and I'm sure the developers couldn't give a toss whilst they build their tiny rabbit hutches to sell for exorbitant sums.

    How does diving affect construction activites?

    Parking space?

    It's behind a barrier manned by a security guard about 100 metres down the road.

    Main thing is to call them first before going there.

    So it doesn’t then and is just another bit of wanky bureaucracy from arseholes telling people what to do just because they can.
