Ocean conservation charity Ghost Fishing UK has announced that it is 'delighted' to be running its annual Winter Warmer 'in person' this coming January, following the postponement of last year's gathering due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event will be once again held at the National Diving and Activity Centre (NDAC) in Chepstow, from the morning of Saturday, 15 January until the Sunday afternoon. 

Ghost Fishing UK's Winter Warmer is both a fundraiser for the charity and an important opportunity for divers in the UK to meet the team. Participants will have the opportunity to dive with the charity’s instructors –  who are all experienced Ghost Fishing divers – to get a taster of what diving with the organisation is all about.

Divers with the appropriate experience, qualifications and equipment (details on the charity's events page) can sign up for one of the three underwater sessions on offer over the weekend. There is a limited number of places that must be booked in advance and which will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

On Saturday evening, the charity will host a social event with bar, BBQ, raffle, auction, guest speakers and music. All proceeds from the event go straight into recovering lost fishing gear from the ocean.

'This event is always a lot of fun and a great way for divers and the public to become involved in the charity,' said Charity Trustee, Christine Grosart. 'It takes a lot of work for our volunteers to organise and whilst last year’s online event was well attended, nothing compares to a proper in-person social event that NDAC kindly host for us.'

To book a taster workshop (one per diver) with Ghost Fishing UK, which includes evening social ticket, please head to Workshops + Evening Social ticket page. Select your preferred time slot (first come first served) and ensure you read the fine print before you sign up. To attend just the evening social only, book tickets at Evening Social Only
