    The club has arranged Aquatic First Aid training for our members at the beginning of December. Aquatic First Aid is a requirement for coaches and leaders, but is strongly recommended for anyone going out on the water - we would encourage all of our members to do this at some point.

    We have booked a two-day course as we believe this is far superior to the one-day course, giving you time to develop your new skills through practical scenarios and allowing for a bit more fun!

    Closing date for bookings is 15th Oct (after this date any places not taken will be offered to non-members).

    * The club is willing to subsidise the cost of this course in line with our policy as identified in the Club Handbook section 10.3 ‘Subsidised Course Fees’. (Note: the handbook is on the website). If you want to discuss subsidy or apply for it, please contact the Events Co-ordinator – Sammy Deans. The minor deviation from this policy for this event is that the minimum age for this particular course will be 14 years.

    Example:- One of the main areas we are currently short of First Aid Trained people is at the poolside on a Monday evening – being prepared to be part of that rota would be considered as appropriate criteria for the subsidy.

    Following on from last year’s successful Canal Paddle and meal at the Micro Brewery, this year we have arranged another paddle on the Royal Military Canal, starting at Ham Street and finishing at Appledore, where we will have a meal in the Black Lion.

    This is only a 4 mile paddle, so is suitable to anyone who has on water experience outside of the pool and all types of kayaks and canoes. Members are welcome to invite spouses, partners and friends. For those not wishing to paddle you are welcome to meet the group at the Black Lion for a meal.

    As we have a time slot, at the Black Lion, of 15:00 to 17:30, we would need to be on the water by 12:30 and loading up our boats after the paddle by 14:30.

    You will find the menu on the Black Lion's website and Keith will need to have your choice of main course by December 6th.

    For those requiring equipment please use the equipment request form.

    Any other queries, including requests for help with transport should be sent to Keith White, phone 07581 067951 or email hazolimad@live.co.uk.

    More detailed timings and locations will be circulated closer to the event.

Event Notes

  • All paddles start at 10am unless otherwise stated.
  • Waterways licences are required on inland rivers and canals within England.
  • Please ensure you understand the trip definitions and the expectation of you and a member of the group.
  • It is important the organiser of each trip knows you are intending to attend, otherwise they may leave without you, or decide a slight change in plan due to weather or water conditions.
  • Peer-peer paddles may be coordinated directly by email, text, group-chat, social media or phone as these are more relaxed.
  • Please note that if you are a non member i.e. you have not paid the annual membership fee (due by end of April), the cost for each and every organised event will be £10.
