"Just to say thanks for yesterday. It was a most successful afternoon, and I think that all the children had a great time. From our perspective, it was very good value for money, and we were particularly impressed by the ratio of instructors to children. Very good! I have two comments you may be interested in:

• Henry said it was the best birthday party he has had
• Alex said it was the most fun thing he had done all holidays

We will definitely recommend it to our friends if they ask, and who knows, you may have some new students for summer courses. Many thanks again.

"Dear John Mary, Thank you both and Martin, we had the best summer for years!  Your efforts have changed my childrens lives!! Wow!  Best wishes."  Michelle, Raab, Elizabeth and Jack (Open Water Course)

"Dear John & Mary, we wanted to express our sincere thanks to you both for the totally excellent tuition we received on our open water referral course over the weekend - 29th & 30th April.
We were both very impressed with the high standard of teaching and the professional manner in which the course was delivered by you and your fellow instructors and a special thank you to Richard for his painstaking patience and dedication. He is a real credit to Maidstone Scuba School and please pass on our thanks to him.  I know that many other scuba schools would not have taken such time and persevered to successfully get Sandra through the course and  sincere thanks to both you and  Mary for allowing sufficient time for this to happen. When we left after Sunday Sandra was really on a high and we both felt a true sense of real achievement. Sandra hasn’t stopped demonstrating and talking about her newly acquired skills, which was such a difference to the first day when she wanted to just give up. Thanks to you, Mary and the other instructors we will now be able to enjoy our future diving together.

I know we both really enjoyed the course and would have no hesitation in recommending Maidstone Scuba School to our friends and family, we have already persuaded a friend to hopefully come and see you. We both look forward to seeing you again in the summer when with any luck we will be able to undertake an advanced open water course. A big THANK YOU to real professionals." David & Sandra (Open Water Course)

"Hi John and Mary, just a quick note to say thanks for a great weekend and getting me through my open water referral course, I would like to compliment you on the great instructors we had for the weekend Richard and co, and on how professional they all were I thoroughly enjoyed their company and instruction A big pat on the back to Maidstone scuba school" Nick Hopes (Open Water Course)

"completed open water course at Ley Lakes. Very impressed with the way the course was run. Itching to go on the advanced course in august, must pop round and collect next diver manual. Cheers everyone, thanks for the tea Mary" John Day (Open Water Course)

"Just a note to say thank you very much for a really enjoyable weekend.  The company was great and I leaned a great deal" Catherine Hogarth (Advanced OW Course)

"I am writing to thank you for your work yesterday for Maidstone Borough Councilthe Scuba Diving Camp.  We had by far the most amount of interest for Scuba Diving than any of the other events that we had arranged for the Easter Holidays.  I believe that it was a great success. I was very grateful for the help and flexibility that the other Instructors and Divemasters showed in helping us in for the morning" Maidstone Borough Council

"Thank you so much for a really enjoyable and inspiring course. The pool sessions were well supervised and open water dives were excellent. The whole program was professional and the tutoring very friendly, which made for a really great learning environment." Jonathan Allen

"I can’t remember when I had such an excellent time.  For me you guys made the weekend, it was incredible informative but fun with it, and considering there was an exam included I don’t usually associate fun as well.  I thought the course was extremely well structured and with so much to learn, the class time was absolutely right.  I was inspired by your encouragement, help and kindness throughout the weekend, and am really looking forward to going on to do my Advanced Open Water with you, and who knows where from there! Once again thank you and look forward to seeing you all soon." Clare Bateson-Cooper

"I wanted to e-mail you a little note to say thank you for all your help and patience during my open water course.  I thoroughly enjoyed the four days even though Leybourne Lake was a little cold!  Many thanks again." Kate Reeves

"Remember going for Open Water ?  Pretty scary looking back: swatting up for an exam, moving from a heated pool to that first time in a murky lake and not knowing if you were up to it? It was worth it though.   It meant you could start to dive properly and the MSS team were friendly and supportive throughout and helped make things reasonably easy. Well, having completed it today, the Advanced somehow seemed a lot easier- there were knowledge reviews but no test.  Most of the skills you have done already but you learn to stretch them.  It helps that Gildenburgh is also a real dive centre and a lot more civilised than Leybourne.  There was again an excellent MSS team; 4 instructors to 5 of us so it was always going to be very safe and very supportive.  5 fascinating dives ranging from navigating round a sunken bus to seeing a very large pike almost within touching distance - all the skills very do-able and fun.  Quite a few laughs, some fantasies about John's derriere (Mary can explain) and dive-bags bulging with our new slates, wheels and T-shirts. Inevitably there was curry (lots) and beer (little! honestly John) and some very nice people with diving in common.  A great weekend despite the rain. Downside? - only that most of us have quite unpredictably signed up to the rescue diver course seduced by John's on-course discount plus a free T-shirt which means that we will have another good weekend diving. And yes, even if we hadn't been told it was not the greatest match, it was worth missing the Cup Final for. Thanks John, Mary and your team." Gordon

"Just to thank you for the excellent training you gave myself and Laura for the first part of our Open Water course. We were well prepared to complete the course in Spain and did so last week. You'll be pleased to know that visibility for the final navigation course was about 2 metres! Will be joining your club next pay day! Look forward to some good dive trips.I Thanks again" Terry and Laura (Buckland)

“I would like to thank you all for your wonderful help, training and passion for diving.  It has been a wonderful weekend and I am loving it!  You have all made it very easy and extremely pleasant.  I am definitely going to continue training, as I need to reach that ‘Dive Mistress’ level!  - Advanced Open Water Course 21st 22nd May Thank you again” Stephanie
