A Club update and a survey to help improve your club

Dear Paddler


We hope that you are all well and safe and sound.

I know that many people are now getting frustrated with the lock down and it is hard to be missing our paddling, our friends and the sense of peace that we gain from being out on the water.

As trustees we are also frustrated by the lack of access but we want to spend this time trying to work towards improving the offer that we can make for our paddlers when we all finally manage to return from lock down.

We have designed a simple questionnaire which will take about 10 minutes to complete.  This is your chance to have your say with what you would like to see the club offer over the next year.

Please do take the time to think about what you would like the club to offer, and then complete the survey online.



Congratulations

A big round of applause to Francis Sherwood for being selected for the GB freestyle Junior Academy.  Francis’s paddling has improved dramatically in the last year and he is now spinning his freestyle moves, well he would be if he could get on the water.  Hopefully when we can all get back to paddling he will be able to take up his place in the Academy.
