Diving in East London and the Border Undersea Club: Contrary to popular belief, scuba diving is thriving in East London. The Border Undersea Club was established in 1953, which ranks it as the third oldest dive club in the country. The clubhouse is situated at the Orient Complex, overlooking the pools and the beach. The club has easy access to the sea, ensuring easy and safe boat launches. A hot shower and a bacon and egg breakfast after a morning dive probably makes the Border Undersea Club one of the best dive club facilities in the country.
Coming up on Saturday 1 October is the eagerly-awaited 12th annual Wizards on Wheels Car Show. The display, which has become one of the biggest events on the local motoring calendar, was started in 2005 by the chairman of the Border Street Rod and V8 Club, Johan Hattingh. His idea was to put together a show involving all motoring clubs and private enthusiasts in the region, inviting them to display their vintage, classic and unusual vehicles. WOW is more than just a car show; it offers a day’s outing for the whole family with food stalls, industrial stalls, a mini flea market, a big screen TV for rugby fans and pub facilities for the thirsty.
