Re-starting Canoe Club Activity – update on pool sessions and Saturday trips / events

Pool Sessions

Thanks to those of you who responded to our survey about pool sessions. The good news is that enough of you said that you’d be interested in Monday evening pool sessions for us to take this to the next stage. HOWEVER, because of social distancing requirements, it is unlikely that we will be able to run sessions with the small numbers we will need to stay safe and to cover our costs. SO, we now will be applying for a grant from Sport Wales to help us cover the extra costs of running sessions in the Covid-19 environment – which does mean they won’t be starting for a little while yet. Watch this space for further updates…

Saturday Trips / Events

The even-better news is that we will soon be starting some regular Saturday trips or events – on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month.

During the winter, most of these are likely to be white-water trips, suitable for paddlers with some moving-water experience and who have their own transport and (ideally) their own equipment. But we will try to include some events more suited to beginners as well, if there is enough demand.

The first of these will be Sat 24 Oct ‘Easy White Water’ Trip – more details to follow, but in the meantime please reply to this message if you’d like more information about this and future trips.
