In memory of David Frederick Turner

David Frederick Turner

He attended the Sandford Lido daily in the summer to practice diving. The diving boards at the Lido were the inspiration and the catalyst for future personal success and the establishment of a tremendously succesful diving club.

By 1954 David was Western Counties men’s Champion a position he would retain until 1963 when he retired from competing. 

During this period, he established the clubs diving section which trained at the Lido during the summer and on a trampette during the winter. His first three pupils all won district Championships and competed nationally.  The squad grew and soon the club were winning the first three places at Western counties diving championships.
