Recently one of our members, Angie Whitmore has been appointed Young Peoples Project Coordinator at the Peter Le Marchant Trust in Loughborough.One of her first projects is to involve young volunteers to collect rubbish on the canal. This will be part of the Surfers Against Sewage, ‘Million Mile Beach Clean’.The clean up will involve volunteers from Loughborough University, Sea Cadets and Peter Le Marchant Trust amongst others. It would be good if some our younger members and families could also be involved. SBC Paddlers will supply our own boat and kit and some of our older members will offer support and organise the logistical side.Apart the obvious benefits of helping the environment, the event will provide the opportunity:
- to meet other young people interested in the water
- practice paddle skills
- paddle in a different environment
- will add something to you CVs
- tick off miles for Surfers Against Sewage
If you are interested please contact myself through the usual channels.PS We need to send a team considerably younger than the one in the photo!
