    Kit stolen at chepstow

    My brother was at Cheppy yesterday and overheard some people in the shop talking about reporting a theft of some kit to the Police. The kit was stolen from the Pontoon. This is all i know. So be aware on weekends people. We have never had any problems there midweek.

    Hopefully it was a genuine mistake (happens more often than not) and they get their kit back.


    Mods, can we have a Lost/Found/Stolen sub forum?

    Ndac was extremely busy yesterday, never seen so many divers there. sadly theses things happen at all dive sites coastal or inland, fortunately very rarely at Chepstow.

    Hopefully some one will realise the errors of there ways and call the shop and report they have picked someone elses kit up by mistake and return it to the owner

    Of course leaving kit all over the kitting up benches does not help but once again not isolated to Ndac

    As expected someone phoned the shop 90 minutes after the kit was reported missing, the kit a bcd will be returned to Ndac today and as a token gesture Ndac has offered to service the bcd free of charge prior to it being picked up by the owner

    When its busy, we always take our kit off the bench and put it to one side inbetween dives.
