As Christmas becomes a distant memory we are fast approaching spring and this can only mean one thing – PUGNEYS!

Over the next few weeks we will be giving our container a spring clean and some much needed TLC as well as checking over our stock of boats in preparation for the summer season.  

Last year was a bumper year for paddlers at Pugneys with large numbers of both regulars and newcomers every week. The weather was fantastic with hot sunny days almost every weekend and everyone having a fantastic time each session.

We may even invest in some bigger and better water guns this year and we all know what that means – Andy gets even more of a soaking every week!

We will once again be running taster sessions throughout the season allowing non members to come along and have a go on the various boats and SUP’s we have at the lake.

We will also look to run Paddlesport courses for our younger members, these courses will give a basic insight into paddlesports including safety, correct kit, basic paddling etc. After completing the course each participant will receive a British Canoeing certificate. For anyone who enjoys paddling and wants to progress there are lots of courses available from British Canoeing ranging from volunteers right up to coach level.

We hope to see many regular faces from last year as well as lots of newcomers who want to have a try at paddlesports.
