The Team

Dave & Sue Williams
CommentDave and Sue Williams, joint owners of Somerset Divers, qualified divers and dive buddies since 1991.They are both experienced and enthusiastic divers, with a special interest in photography for David and science for Sue with her degree in Natural Sciences. Diving and travel play a big part in their lives and in their spare time they own and run a pub in the village of Lower Weare, The Lamb Inn. David is likely to be found on the Somerset Divers trips, driving the van and sorting the kit if not actually in the water, with Sue back at base running the office and keeping an eye on the pub!
