Great news from the Vobster team...Dear divers, thanks for your patience!

A historic moment is almost upon us. Vobster Quay will re open for members pre booked diving on 29th June!

There are a couple of vitally important things to know about this!

First, every member needs to accept our new terms and conditions. We will have a new web based app for you to all do this next week. We won't be processing these before the app. You cannot do this by visiting for diving.

After accepting the new Ts and Cs, every member can book diving slots from 8am to 2pm OR 2pm to 8pm, 7 days per week. If you don't book, you can't dive - simples! This booking will also be via the app.

We will open for new memberships later in July, as soon as the bulk of existing members have processed themselves.

Schools, instructors and clubs: Please email us and we will set you up for your groups before you come diving. Email info@vobster.com to get on our list and we will induct you into the process. This applies to all BSAC clubs and one man band instructors also - if you know the training officer, please make them aware of this requirement - we need to get you all on the same page!

this is all so that we can operate a safe socially distanced environment for everyone at Vobster Quay. Please do not arrive or bring students without pre booking - you will be turned away.

We're very much looking forward to welcoming you back to Vobster Quay - thanks in advance for your time to get registered and help us provide you with access to Vobster in these novel times!

Cheers,

The Vobster Team

Having just completed the online part of this course, we are happy to recommend it to others. It is well laid out, very relevant, free (at the moment) and wont take a long time to do.https://www.firstresponse-ed.com/airborne-pathogens-code-page/Image attachmentImage attachment

By way of a little update.
Last nights update from the government has appeared to confuse some, but our stance is this:
While we are still under a Level of 4 on the newly released scale, it is just not sensible to resume teaching. While this is frustrating for many of us, it is still the case that we cannot engage in sports (or sporting activities - which we take to include diving) with anyone outside of your household.
This makes teaching diving - which is by its nature a group activity (especially when in line with HSE Regulations) - impossible at the moment. I am sure that you appreciate that this also includes group diving. Until we get further updates we will maintain this position.

We will however look to planning for when we are able to resume once again. Any teaching we can do remotely, we are happy to do.
We want to get back to normal as much as anyone else, but will not do it in such a way as to put people at risk.
The water is not going anywhere and will be there when we return.

If anything, I would recommend using this downtime to look over your kit and ready it for when you can use it - get it serviced! You can arrange to drop off with some centres, and some are even offering to pick up! It’s a good time to get in ahead of the last-minute crew!Good morning everyone. All of the team at Vobster wish you well and hope lockdown is remaining bearable. We have a short update for you, following the update from the government on Sunday evening.

In short, nothing has yet changed for Vobster Quay. The covid alert level is still defined as 4 and has not been reduced. Although there is now an outline for how lockdown might ease, IF (big IF) certain conditions are met, this does not realistically enable Vobster to open until the covid alert level has been reduced by the government. We will not be opening early in lockdown, but anticipate being broadly in line with hospitality.

When that level is reduced, we have to ensure that covid risks to visitors and staff are minimised. We are working on social distancing procedures, assessments for numbers on site and PPE to back this up. What we actually implement depends very much on how the overall situation develops in the next few weeks. We will update you on the final preparations shortly before opening.

We will be re assessing this week by week, and will update you if anything changes. In the meantime, thank you for your patience and please stay healthy with your social distancing. This is a team event and any restraint now will no doubt help re stablish a safe, new normal sooner.

Best wishes,

Amy and the Vobster Team
