Infrastructure works at the National Diving & Activity Centre

We have been carrying out some infrastructure works at the National Diving & Activity Centre.

Twenty tonnes of concrete has been laid to extend the lake’s slipway and improve access to and from the water.

We request that visitors keep out of the coned areas until the concrete has dried fully.

We hope this improvement will help our divers access and egress the water a little more easily. Watch this space for further improvements.
