The story of “The Northern Federation of Divers”
The real story of NORFED started back in 1955, when leaders of the Huddersfield Branch suggested that there might be a closer affiliation between Club Branches in the North West-North East and Yorkshire BSAC Branches, apart from the joint expeditions that were taking place. Over the past 61 years there have been many changes in; attitudes – technical advances of equipment- clothing and especially the dive sites that are now available all over the world.
