COVID-19 pandemic sees Simply Scuba go into administration

In a sliver of good news, it is understood that the administrators are hoping to sell the company rather than shut it down, and have asked for interested parties to submit bids by Thursday 30 April. Unfortunately, while there is expected to be some interest from bidders to buy the business outright, it is not clear whether that will be possible given the current situation, and the uncertainty surrounding the economy.
