COVID-19 - Return to Paddling.

We are running a restricted paddling programme now (see below).  Each Tuesday evening we will arrange three separate paddles, each for a maximum of 6 paddlers (leader + 5 members).

All club paddles must comply with our COVID-19 rules.  By joining a club paddle, you are agreeing to abide by those rules.  Please note: in order to manage groups under these new restrictions, we need members to book on trips in advance, NOT turn up without a booking, stay together as a group while on the water and, most importantly, arrive punctually to be ready to paddle at the agreed time.

If members want to organise 'peer' paddles during this time, they are welcome to use the club facebook page and forum to arrange these as normal as long as they adhere to these guidelines.  Rememer - no more than 6, paddle well within your ability level and maintain social distancing.  The lastest British Canoeing guidelines can be found as https://www.britishcanoeing.org.uk/coronavirus-covid-19-updates
