New Sessions for Paddlers at Havelock

Please let us know on 07951 770241 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you are going to attend, this is so we can ensure we have the right boats on site. Please not we may need to cancel Winter sessions due to weather, so please check before you travel.
We will meet just above the top lock of the Hanwell flight on Havelock Road, UB2 4PH.
This is part of our plan to create the most successful local canoe club ever, we have been working in the area for the past 5 years and the support from local people has been amazing and now it is time to take things to the next level. We will be teaching people of all ages, coaching and getting people to race locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
Yes, we have been to international events with our racing paddlers and now it is your turn to get involved, to enjoy the fun and the success.
We will hold some local races at the site and by next Easter we hope to have completed our new home at Havelock: Once this is established we will be running several sessions a week, training local people to race for us, providing opportunities for all. We will also provide lessons for beginners and sessions for recreational and family paddlers; enabling the whole community to be involved.
What can you do to help?
Well the most obvious way is to come along and join the Club and paddle with us
We need people to help us run the Club, help out with administration at sessions, support the coaches and help us organise trips to other locations, rivers and competitions. Please do not worry, you will not be left to do this on your own, we will support you at every step of the way.
We need people who can help us manage our site once it is converted, so we can make the most of it and get more people involved and make this a truly community club with a community hub. Any offers and ideas are welcome.
We also need people to help us convert the garages to a functioning club house, so if you have skills, know somebody who does, or just want to help out, then please get in touch.
This will happen, we will succeed and with your help and support we will be the best!
