NW10 News

We are in NW10

We have finally made it, we now have our container in the Disraeli Road Carpark, NW10 7AE, adjacent to the canal, so we are now fully functional and running sessions in the Stonebridge Park Ward of the London Borough of Brent. We are next to the Beit el Zaytoun Restaurant in Park Royal, which is just a few minutes walk from Harlesden Station. So very easy to get to.

We are now running sessions from the Container every Thursday evening we will then run open sessions from 5pm and 6pm for all ages and if there is interest we will run and adults only session from 7pm till 8pm after which participants could enjoy a swift refreshment or two in the Grand Junction Arms (Paddle and Pub). This project is being supported by the Old Oak Common and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC). These sessions will cost just £5 per person, but the first one is free.

We are also currently working with  British Canoeing to establish a satellite club from 4pm for school aged people only. For more information give us a call on 07951 770241 or email: canoeing@thesharks.org.uk.

At the moment it looks like this, you cannot miss it, but over the next few weeks as well as starting paddling sessions on a Thursday evening, we will pain the container and make it a true work of art. If you would like to be involved in the project, please get in touch, call: 07951 770241 or email: canoeoing@thesharks.org.uk.

Our aim is to get as many people actively involved and to create a fantastic community Canoe Club, which enables people to take part in a variety of way and levels, from learning and recreation to training and competition. We will introduce races and a race section as well a having regular recreation sessions for the whole family.
