Good afternoon members, we promised you some exciting news and here it is – our second permanent location.
Today we took delivery of this container, it is located on a small car park on the right just before the security hut at our river location. The container was donated by Mad Paddlers who unfortunately had to close their club at Hemsworth Water park. The container is well stocked with different types of kayaks and equipment which will enable us to run larger sessions on the river as well as evening sessions.
The car park is owned by The Junction and Coffee Stop Café in the main car park and they have kindly allowed us to put our container on there and use the car park.
This is fantastic news for our club allowing us to offer more sessions without having to transport boats and kit around for each session.
Massive thanks to John and Emma from Mad Paddlers for donating the container and contents, also another massive thanks to Helen and the gang at The Coffee Stop – I’m sure you will all show your appreciation by using the café during the sessions.
In the next few weeks we will tidy up the car park as well as organise a river clean up around the area we paddle.
We hope you will all enjoy this new facility and hopefully this is a further step in our club progression.
Once again a big Thank You to all involved.
