An update from the Club

Dear Paddler

Many thanks to those who joined us tonight on our Trip planning online workshop and it was great to meet up in cyber space.  We now have some ideas for future workshops so look out for the next instalment.  If you have a topic that you would like us to cover then please let us know and we will try and find someone to run a workshop on it for you.

British Canoeing and the Canals and Rivers Trust have tonight both issued statements asking people not to access canals and waterways for paddling.

In light of the government’s Stay at Home measures and following new guidance issued today by the Environment Agency and Canal & River Trust, which impacts the usage of waterways, British Canoeing has further revised its position and now strongly recommends that all paddlesport activity should immediately cease on rivers, waterways and coastal areas until further notice.
This is in line with government advice requiring people to stay at home, except for very limited purposes, avoiding social gatherings and all non-essential travel.
I know that this will come as a blow to those of you who were hoping to get out and enjoy the fresh air, but as a club we would ask that you follow the guidance of our National Governing Body and now avoid paddling.
Take care in these difficult times, and we look forward to seeing you in cyber space.
