BSAC safe return to diving guidance:
20th March 2020. Closure of the Brentwood Centre & Pool
By now most of you will have heard the news that leisure venues (including The Brentwood Centre) are closed with immediate effect. Whilst this will clearly have an impact on Brentwood Selo, we are committed to ensuring that we continue to serve our members and provide you with advice and training that is tailored to your needs. Inevitably we will need to be innovative and our training team are already exploring digital platforms to continue training programmes and share knowledge & experience.
…….and don’t hang up those regs just yet! Where it is safe to do so and meets health and safety best practice, we will endeavour to arrange open water dives for members.
We will also ensure that the compressor is available for air fills albeit please use this facility alone and not in groups.
More news will follow in the coming days so please stay tuned, stay safe and have a great weekend.
Richard – Chair Brentwood Selo
