Hello Squids,

I am delighted to introduce our new social squids, Becky and Karina! Becky and Karina are both our long time club members. These two met at a Big Squid trip in Portland and have been friends ever since! They are both rescue divers, keen photographers and have travelled all over the world to enjoy the wonders of the sea.

Becky and Karina will be arranging all the socials going forward while ex-social squid Di retires to Squids Land for new adventures! Thank you everyone for the wonderful time I had!

During the summer the Big Squid social calendar will be full of exciting events under the reign of our new social squids! So watch this space! 🦑

Lots of love,
Di - the newly retired squid x
