Saturday 27th June

This Saturday we are  planning something a little different as many of our members will be at Slenningford for the family camping weekend.

A lot of you have been asking if we can put  together a beginner river trip so here it is.

We will meet at Healey Mills Ossett WF5 8NE at 12.00pm, we will then unload all equipment and then shuttle the cars to the end point at Horbury Junction.

The river consists of the normal sections followed by couple of straight sections, a nice rapids section near the Bingley Arms and finally we end just after the weir shown in the picture.

There is not a lot of rain forecast for this week and  the forecast for Saturday is warm but cloudy so should be a pleasant trip.

The trip is open to any club members and suitable for most abilities but you must let me know by latest Thursday if you intend to paddle so we can organise safety cover etc.

Anyone who needs any kit etc. or has any questions please contact me at: or through facebook messenger or mobile 07748 111819 (Andy)

It  is important we know who is planning to attend so we can contact you in case of any last minute changes.

Please ensure you have adequate clothing and footwear as you will not be allowed  on the river if not – especially footwear, no bare feet or wellies (yes people have turned up in these)

The trip should take between 2 – 3 hours.
