With much of the country moving into Tier 4 restrictions, the increasing pressures on the NHS locally, and the Government’s advice to stay at home and avoid unnecessary travel, we have decided to close the National Diving & Activity Centre for all activities.
Below are the 2020/21 Christmas and New Year opening times for the National Diving & Activity Centre (more…)
Regrettably we are closing the National Diving & Activity Centre for Scuba Diving over the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd of January 2021.
Although we’d initially met the minimum number of bookings, we’ve had a number of cancellations from visitors unable to travel from Tier 3 locations. Unfortunately this has meant that the weekend is no longer viable for opening and we will have to postpone the remaining bookings.
We appreciate this is disappointing and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Anyone with a booking will be contacted in the next couple of days and provided with a 12 month voucher to rearrange their booking.
We are currently open all the other weekends in January (subject to minimum numbers and Covid restrictions) and will be reviewing February/March dates in the new year.
We thank you for your continued support and understanding. We look forward to seeing you soon.
It is with great sadness we announce that Luke Hart sadly passed away at the Grange University Hospital on Sunday 29th November 2020. Luke was a big part of the NDAC family for many years, working in the gas room and was loved by all.
Luke will be sadly missed, not only by all of us who had the pleasure of working with him, but the many divers he had met and became friends with. Our thoughts and condolences go out to Luke’s Family at this sad time.
Luke’s funeral will be held on Monday 21st December 2020. Due to the restrictions that are in place, the funeral will be conducted in the presence of immediate family only. The family request that you remember Luke by raising a toast or lighting a candle on the day of his funeral. His funeral cortege will leave Bethesda Baptist Church, Rogerstone at 14:00, for those wanting to pay their last respects. If friends wish to pay their respects please abide by social distancing rules and local restrictions that may be in place.
We have been asked by many people about flowers or donations for Luke and we have been advised it will be family flowers only, but there is a memory page set up for Luke.
On the page there is also the opportunity to make a donation in Luke’s memory to Tŷ Hafan hospice for children. You can also leave your memories of Luke and light a candle in his memory.
Edward Luke Hart
30 May 1979 – 29 November 2020
Due to exceptional unforeseen circumstances, the National Diving & Activity Centre will be closed for Scuba Diving and Wigwam Accommodation next weekend (Friday 11th, Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th December 2020).
All bookings for wigwams will be deferred for you to re-book on another date. 12 month vouchers will be sent out to anyone who has booked scuba diving.
We are truly sorry for the short notice, inconvenience and disappointment this will bring.
We will reopen for the weekend 19th & 20th December before we close for Christmas. The site will reopen in the new year 2021 and we very much hope it will be a better year than 2020.
Thank you to you all for your continued support and understanding during these troubled times we have all found ourselves in.
