In January 2016 Burghead Sub Aqua Club applied for monies to replace their aging dry-suits which were worn out and no longer water tight so that they could continue to take on trainees and maintain the viability of the club.
In February 2016 the club was successful in its application and was awarded £3,000 by Awards for All part of the Big Lottery Fund.
With the monies received from Awards For All the club was able to purchase 5 dry suits and associated rock boots.
These have been used in 2017 onwards in the training of new members of the club in their progress towards Ocean Diver and have been a great success. They will continue to be used and it will give the club many years of use to bring on new divers into the club. This will sustain the membership of the club so that it can remain viable for the foreseeable future.
