Events for this weekend have been added to the calendar.
This week we are planning to run 2 morning sessions on the river and 2 afternoon sessions at Pugneys. The river is subject to the level being low enough to run safely in the morning and as per Facebook post will be limited to competent paddlers who are confident using a spray deck.
Sessions are being run but with limited numbers per session. To assist with social distancing measures, we will be running small sessions of no more than 5 people plus leader (in line with guidance from British Canoeing).
Morning River sessions:
Session one: 9.45 – 11.45pm
Session four: 10.00 – 12.00pm
Afternoon Pugneys sessions:
Session three: 1.00 – 3.00pm
Session four: 1.15 – 3.15pm
Changing rooms within the main building are not presently available, so please arrive at the session prepared as best as possible and be prepared to change at your car / outside. For current up-to-date information about current amenities at Pugneys, see the page below:

Also please remember anyone – paddlers or spectators are NOT allowed past the wooden fence without a buoyancy aid – sorry there are no exceptions to this rule.
Depending on the wishes of the group and the weather, we can either paddle around the lake or stay in the sheltered area.
Costs for borrowing equipment are £6.00 for the river sessions and £8.00 per person at Pugneys, slight difference in cost due to a charge the club have to pay to Pugneys for each paddler on the lake.
