Midsummer Paddle

Midsummer paddle, camp and BBQ Saturday 23rd of June
Looking to paddle mid morning on the 23rd 4 or 5 hours and then a 3 or 4 hour paddle mid morning onwards on the 24th
The campsite is on the river Nene with good facilities and about a 70 minute drive from Loughborough.
Link attached
The idea is a one night camp, with it being relatively close but if you want to camp Friday it’s not a problem
Caravans and tents are accommodated on the site and Peterborough is close for any non paddlers.
There are several possible routes through nice countryside with plenty to see.
On a fact finding trip we saw red kite, roe deer, kingfishers and skydivers
If intrested please let me know so I can get an idea of numbers.

Pool Sessions Update

***Pool Sessions***

Pool sessions will commence at 8pm to 9.30pm Monday 5th March at King Edwards VII College Coalville. I have provisionally booked three weeks with a view to extending this if required.

I would like a deposit of £20 per adult to confirm a place. The sessions will be £10 each. Hopefully this will be reduced if we have decent numbers. Children will be £3 each.

Please confirm ASAP.

Pool Sessions


We are looking at organising some pool sessions on a Monday night at Coalville. The sessions will be approximately £10 each for an hour and a half, with hopefully reduced rates for young persons.

The course will cover kayak strokes, rescue and rolling. Could you please message me if you are seriously interested in taking part.

Once we have an idea of numbers, myself and Graeme can book and organise the sessions.

This will be a great way to develop your skills in warm and clean water!,
