YOUNG scuba diver Miguel Carvalho seized the opportunity to refresh his skills at the sport at the weekend.
The activity was part of Cherwell District Council’s free Connecting Communities event for visitors to Banbury’s Spiceball Leisure Centre on Saturday.
Miguel, from Bicester, said: “I did it just for fun. I haven’t done it in a long time and it helped me remember a lot.”
The 12-year-old’s father, Carlos Carvalho, 43, is a member of Banbury Sub Aqua Club.
He said: “It was a good opportunity to show everybody what we do.”
Frank Betts, a British Sub Aqua Club advanced instructor and member of Banbury Sub Aqua Club, said: “We were busy for two hours and the pool was busy the whole time.
“We had a range of people, so it was good.”
The event featured other sports’ clubs including swimming, running and squash.
