Rick Moore, has also been busy raising the appalling issue of raw sewage being dumped in our rivers by water companies, putting our sport and people’s health at risk.

We also did what we are best at, and that is getting people paddling, with 145 people attending our holiday sessions at Harlesden run in partnership with Canal and River Trust.

In addition to that we have restarted our after school clubs with Harlesden Primary School and Three Bridges Primary School.

We have restarted regular club sessions at Harlesden and at Southall, whilst continuing or Harefield sessions.
