Saturday 8th May

Events for this weekend have been added to the calendar.

This week we are running morning sessions on the river and afternoon sessions on Pugney’s. We will run tasters sessions at both locations.

There has been some rain over the weekend and a little more forecast during the week, hopefully the river will still be at a manageable level for the morning session however if it does rise too much we may have to cancel the session and move to the afternoon session at Pugney’s or the following week.

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 Pugney’s session:

1.00 – 3.00pm

1.00 – 3.00pm Taster session

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 and tasters sessions are £15 per person.  

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.
