News Update – March 2019

Greetings Divers – Welcome to the first Newsletter from Doncaster Sub Aqua Club!

As some of you will have noticed, the new website is live. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out, here is the link: https://doncaster-sac.co.uk. We still need to put lovey mugshots of the committee and instructors on there, but it is definitely an improvement on the old one!

You will notice that the news page is linked to Facebook, this means that events from Facebook automatically show up on the webpage. This is one of the reasons all our pool nights have been put on Facebook as events. (The other is to stop the “Is it a pool night?” messages on WhatsApp every week).

Facebook Marketing is starting to take off, Our Try-Dive post has now reached over 1,500 people and growing every day.
