Events for this weekend have been added to the calendar.
This week we are running all sessions on the river in the morning and afternoon. This is due to the car parking situation at Pugneys, hopefully this will be resolved in the next few weeks.
All paddlers who were booked onto last weeks sessions that were cancelled have already been added to this weeks sessions so no need to rebook – if you are booked on and can’t make it this week please let us know by email or Facebook message.
There is no rain forecast this week so the river will be at a low level so this will be suitable for all paddlers and for those more experienced we have the weir and rapids upstream to practice advanced skills.
We are now allowed to run sessions up to 15 people in total including coaches and participants (in line with guidance from British Canoeing).
Morning river session:
10.00 – 12.00pm
10.00 – 12.00pm Taster session
Afternoon river session:
12.30 – 2.30pm
If the sessions become full we will add a further sessions. If anyone is feeling brave the river is quite low and slow flowing so would be suitable for paddle boarding if any members have a board and want to give it a try on the river.
The café at the river is open now until 9 – 1pm so if you want a sandwich you can grab a butty before getting on the water.
The cost for borrowing equipment is £10.00 per person for any session.
Anyone who has not paddled with the club before MUST complete a taster session before joining regular sessions, this allows us to assess any new members and run over club safety procedure’s etc. Taster sessions can also be booked on the website .
PLEASE can all participants bear in mind there is still a high risk of Covid infection and while we are allowed a larger number of people on the water social distancing must remain in place off the water. Please ensure when coming along to sessions you do not socialise with other members while sorting out kit etc. and once you have picked up your kit move away from the trailer area and sort out your kit with your family members or bubble.
