NW10 update

We are Now Paddling in NW10 – Are You?

We have held our first sessions of paddling from container in the Disraeli Road Carpark, NW10 7AE, adjacent to the canal, so we are still developing the sessions and are running sessions every Thursday evening from 4pm 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.C1932459-C508-4674-AA5F-4457F4251277

Come along and join us, we provide all the kit, you don’t need any experience just need to want to have fun.

From 4pm we host our after-school satellite Club, which has won awards. this is hosted in partnership with British Canoeing, the sports governing body and is for school aged people. For more information give us a call on 07951 770241 or email: canoeing@thesharks.org.uk.

At 5pm  and 6pm we run open sessions for all ages and from 7pm we  have an 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.

You cannot miss the Container as it looks like this:

But over the next few weeks as well as starting paddling sessions on a Thursday evening, we will paint  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.
