Wye Weekend

The Wye family weekend is back once again. This years dates are the weekend of 7th -9th July. For those that have not heard of this before, this is a camping or caravanning weekend just outside of Hereford based on a camp site right on the River Wye. It is ideal for families, as partners who don’t paddle can either sit and relax on the camp site, go walking on many of the local routes or go shopping in the local towns and villages.

We meet on the Friday night and starting early on Saturday we paddle a stretch of the Wye that takes in Symonds Yat (a set of rapids owned by British Canoeing and is a great place to play), some paddlers finish there and some carry on down to Monmouth. This trip is either 10 or 20km long depending where you decide to get out. The Saturday night features the famous BBQ where we get together and tell tall stories of canoeing daring do. Sunday is a more relaxing day where we have a nice relaxing paddle from the campsite down to Hoarwithy this is a 12k journey.

For more information and to book please email Hppcc@btinternet.com it is very important that you book onto the trip as we will need the vehicle registration number for your vehicle as the campsite now has a NPRS entry barrier. Costs are £10 for adults and £8 for juniors per person per night. The camp site have made life easier for us this year, rather than paying per tent or caravan and then for extra vehicles and people they are just charging a flat rate per person which makes life easy.

When you email us, please give us your name, the names of anyone else who is coming with you and whether you require electric hook up. You will also need to give us the registration number of any vehicles so that these can be given to the campsite in advance so that you can access the site.
