A page with "admin alter" at the top is one which we intend to change / amend. While it's contents may be relevant, you should make enquiries rather than taking the details of the page as fact.
Any information on this site which is the copyright of Puffin Dive Centre will have a short disclaimer copied at the bottom of the page stating "© Puffin Dive Centre 2008". We ask that browsers do not redistribute or copy the content of those pages. Other pages containing content which is the copyright of external entities will have their own copyright disclaimer as appropriate, for each relevant entity.
New News Items should replace one of the first five news items under the news section (numbers 8 - 4 inclusive). News Item 1 on the News Homepage corresponds to News Item with Id number 8. News Item 2 corresponds to Id7, Item 3 Id6 etc. Items that are being replaced are moved to the beginning of their relevant news section (the archive). Items can be added with the same editing abilities used in the normal pages.
Most of the information on this website is from our own pre-existing manuals, and as such is updated at the same time they are. As PDF files are not the best way to build an entire website, the information has been lifted and edited to make it presentable, usually with images alternating left and right down the length of the page. This may have led to typos / other errors. If you see anything which looks incorrect, please contact us including the page title where you found the error, its web address (URL) and the location of the error on the page.
