    The club has arranged First Aid training for our members.

    This is a one-day First Aid course spread across 2 afternoons and is a requirement for coaches and leaders (some may require the two-day course), but is strongly recommended for anyone over the age of 14 going out on the water - we would encourage all of our members to do this at some point.

    Closing date for bookings is 30th 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 under Training > Subsidised Course Fees. If you want to discuss subsidy or apply for it, please contact Tony Hogben, reply to the event notification or contact us via the website

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.
