Berkshire-based dive centre scoops two prestigious business awards


Divecrew, a family-run diving company based in Crowthorne in Berkshire, has won the Federation of Small Businesses (South East) Family Business of the Year for the second year in the row.

The PADI Approved Youth Training Centre and the UK’s only Gold Star IDC Centre was then put forward for the UK Enterprise Awards, where they brought home the Best Diving Services and Holiday Firm award.

Co-owner of Divecrew Martin Weddle said: “This recognition is humbling and really superb acknowledgement for the professional team of Divecrew. My wife and I bought the ailing business six years ago and with our previous corporate business life being in leisure, we have changed its fortunes around. Divecrew has now enjoyed five years of continuous growth.

“We believe in very high standards of professionalism and have diversified into new and innovative areas of scuba diving teaching,” Martin continued.

To celebrate, Divecrew are offering free try dives for Forces Personnel at Aldershot Garrison to celebrate Armed Forces Day on Saturday, June 23. If you are in the armed forces or are a family member, contact Divecrew and book your free try dive.
