This months member in the spotlight is David Jerram.
Name: David Jerram

Committee Position: Assistant Diving Officer. Responsible for all the diving and safety activities within CPA, including training standards.
Number of years diving: 22 years

Dives you would like to do? I would love to explore the Baltic sometime – and there is talk of a trip to Guadacanal in a few years…
Current activities for CPA: I am looking at ways to attract new members and boost the club membership further. We are also seeking new instructors and trained divers to join CPA.
What makes you dive? I love the whole experience. It’s not just the adventure, it’s the thrill of being somewhere totally different and alien. I also really enjoy diving with our club members – they are all such a great bunch.
What did you want to be when you grew up? I always wanted to ‘dangle’ from a helicopter to rescue people at sea, or to be an astonaut – It’s strange how fate turns the tables 🙂
