June paddle on the Thames update

Hi all,

We are having to change the dates for the June paddle on the Thames to the following weekend.Unfortunately the campsite was closed for a private event on the original dates. I will be canvassing for final numbers shortly as this is a paddle where we need to book the campsite in advance.

Details of the paddle can be seen below or in Events on the Facebook page.

Thanks.

River Thames Paddle June 14th to 16th

We are looking at a weekend paddle and camp on the Thames in June.

The paddle will run from Reading to Henley on the Saturday (around 10 miles) and Henley to Marlow on Sunday (around 9 miles). So not too challenging with time to enjoy the location and facilities.

Part of the paddle may incorporate a backwater which will have some moving water (similar to what we might paddle on the River Wye) subject to water levels.

The campsite is a tents only site, which allows camp fires. I am afraid no dogs allowed.

Advance bookings and payments will be required, but for now please indicate if you are interesting in attending and if you are put it in your diary.

Thanks

Paul Sharpe
