Acting Chairman & Maintenance/Boat Officer – Gary Walker
I have been a member of Dudley Dolphin for quite a while now and enjoy the club atmosphere. I am your maintenance person along with the boat officer and have recently stepped up as acting Chairman.
You can often find me tinkering in the garage on a Sunday morning. I enjoying diving in a variety of places and countries, so much so, the family are also either learning to dive or already qualified to dive. I am always happy to help any member of the club and encourage and support new members. I recently qualified as an assistant instructor and enjoy teaching members and showing them the delights of the underwater world.
Club Secretary & Lead Instructor – Debbie Roberts
It is my job to arrange the committee meetings and ensure there is an agenda, as well as minuting the meetings, and ensure these are available for all members to read (just in case you are suffering from insomnia!). I also make sure that lines of communication between the committee, the outside world and yourselves are kept open so that you know what is happening with the club. I am also responsible for the control of all club documents, producing the club newsletter and ensuring the content of this is correct and up to date.
I have been a member of Dudley Dolphin for well over three years and am Open Water Instructor qualified. I enjoy all types of diving; drift, wreck, reef, warm or cold water, and I have almost completed my Advanced Diver. I enjoy diving with all members as well as supporting my club with training new divers and being an active member going on club trips etc.
Treasurer – Neil Mackay
Hi I’m Neil Mackay your Treasurer. I started diving with PADI and became a rescue diver before I stopped diving because of work and family time constraints. I decided to start diving again last Autumn and picked Dudley Dolphin as my new club. I am currently doing a cross over course to become a BSAC Sports Diver. I enjoy all types of diving and my most amusing incident so far was on a wreck off the coast of Gran Canaria. A small tourist mini submarine went by and I was waving at the passengers who enthusiastically waved back..
Training Officer – Angie Lunn
Angie Lunn – Training Officer since June 2017. I have been part of Dudley Dolphin since September 2005. I came to diving (something I’d always wanted to do) when my brother paid for my try dive and starting lessons for my 40th birthday – it turned out to be the best gift anyone ever gave me. Did first open water dive in the freezing rezza 8th January 8th 2006, in a dry suit with more holes than a colander, fell in love with it and have been diving ever since.
I have been lucky enough to dive all over the world and still find it to be the strangest feeling to dive in warm water without a dry suit – no words can describe the feeling of total freedom, it’s simply wonderful. I am a Dive Leader and have the following additional qualifications, Assistant Dive Instructor, Oxygen Administrator, Advanced Nitrox Diver and Compressor Operator.
Equipment Officer – Carl Roberts
Hi, my name is Carl and I am the equipment officer for Dudley Dolphin. This means I sort out all the equipment and if you are doing your Ocean Diver, I will be providing you with your equipment. You will see me at the Rez on Sundays and at the pool on a Wednesday night. I have been diving for 3 years now and enjoy all aspects of diving, I enjoy sea diving and looking at wrecks and the reefs. I have recently dived in Lanzarote’s warm, clear waters, which was an amazing experience, and would recommend this. I am currently doing my Dive Leader qualification. I recently qualified as an assistant instructor and enjoy sharing my knowledge and skills with new members and passing on my love of diving.
