Scuba Santas

Metalfury have been heavily involved with the branding for the 2011 Scuba Santas.Scuba Santa Tote Bag

Scuba Santas is a mass participation event that involves as many scuba divers as possible dressing up as Santa and diving in the waters of the National Diving & Activity Centre Quarry in Chepstow.

Scuba Santas will be entering its 5th year in 2011 and continues going from strength to strength. Often quoted as the “best dive of the year” the event has raised over £15,000 for crew training at the RNLI breaking its own world record several times over in the process.

Metalfury became involved with Scuba Santas prior to the 2010 event when we developed an updated brand identity, car stickers and Tote bags. This year we have continued our involvement and have produced supporting artwork such as posters, web banners, flyers and sponsorship forms. Metalfury also heavily promoted the event through the NDAC’s social media channels on Facebook and Twitter.

If you’re not a diver, but want to support/sponsor the event please visit the Scuba Santa’s website.

Wooden Wigwams - Experience a touch of luxury in the great outdoors

Do you dream of a UK camping holiday, but feel put off my the rain, discomfort and the cold? Well maybe Glamping is for you!

Glamping is camping’s trendy new friend; combining all the benefits of the great outdoors but without the mud and soggy canvass.

Metalfury have recently been helping the National Diving & Activty Centre (NDAC) with their move into the Glamping arena. The NDAC wanted to offer some low cost accomodation to their divers and tourists visiting the Forest of Dean.

The NDAC decided that rather than just offering a standard campsite, they would invest in the latest in glamping accommodation in the form of Wooden Wigwams. Sleeping up to five adults, Wigwams are the ultimate eco cabin; double-glazed, secure, cosy and warm whatever the time of year. A low cost alternative to hotels and B&Bs, their Wigwams truly offer all year round camping, and the best bit, no pitching a tent in the rain!

Wooden Wigwams make 600 mile journey to NDAC ChepstowThe NDAC ordered their heated cabins, the land was prepared, the infrastructure was put in place and in the meantime Metalfury kept busy keeping the NDAC news pages and twitter feed upto date with the wigwam developments. Then on a rainy February day six Wigwams made their 600 mile journey from the manufacturers in Scotland to the National Diving & Activity Centre in Chepstow.

metalfury produce Wigwam websiteAfter the site works were completed the National Diving & Activity Centre were awarded the planning permission for their wigwam site from the Forest of Dean District Council (FODDC) in April.

The team at the NDAC were keen to take advantage of the upcoming sunny weekend and start taking bookings. So with only a couple of days, metalfury produced the branding for the Wigwam accommodation, a microsite, web banners, promotional flyers and supporting artwork to go inside the wigwams themselves.

It was quite a slog to get everything done and it required quite a lot of caffeine, but we managed to get everything done on time and the wigwams are proving to be a great success. We are really pleased with the results and are looking forward to a relaxing glamping weekend in Chepstow over the summer; toasting marshmallows around a camp fire and sleeping under the stars!
