The 2015 Q1 programme is now ready, and there’s plenty going on. If there’s a trip that you’re not sure of then please get in touch with the Programme Secretary (Matt S). Equally, if there’s somewhere you’d like to paddle specifically then get in touch, there is a huge amount of resource within the club that can help you arrange logistics, coaching and comms.

Happy and safe paddling.

Cook Off – Update

So far I about 14 people interested, there is room for more. The concept is for people to get used to paddling to a location, stopping, cooking a meal and tidying up after themselves (Leave only foot prints, take only photos!). And to do this as if your were camping out, that means carrying everything with you, being self sufficient.

Practicing in the garden is great, but there is no substitute for doing it for real.

Have a think about what kind of stove and pots you have. There are lots of options for food and some great websites with suggestions.

I plan to allocated about 1.5 hours for lunch at Wyre Weir. If you have a Tarp please bring it incase it rains and we may have time to have a play with Tarps.

I will confirm final details nearer the time but let me know if you have any questions.

1 day First Aid Course

Hi all,

First Aid is important, not just for paddling but also as a life skill. You never know when it might be needed. So we have organised a 1 day, 8 hour, First Aid ‘Emergency First Aid at Work’ course, which is certificated and would encourage as many people to attend as possible, not just coaches or river leaders but everyone. The more people than can do first aid the better.

The 1 day First Aid course will be held on Saturday 31 January at Pershore Riverside Youth Centre. The cost of the course will be £60 per person, but should we get more than 12 people then this cost will be reduced to £50 per person. WKCC has indicated that they are prepared to subsidise this cost, Caroline confirm this.

Places are being offered to WKCC members first and then outside the club, there is a maximum of 24 places available.

If you are interested in attending please let me know, I will start collecting a £10 per person, non refundable deposit, at the beginning of January.

I am confirming the lower age limited for the course so we can get open the course up to our juniors.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Message from the Chair

Hi All
I have been appointed Chair (person / man / woman, I don’t mind!) over a month and I have just about got my thoughts together by now.  I have been lucky enough to take over a well run and highly motivated club, so many thanks to Ed and the good work he has done over the last 3 years.  I picked up a couple of hot spots which we now have some focus on; firstly the setting up of DBS cover (replacement to the old CRB) which Claire and Rita are pushing through; secondly a reinvigoration of our Clubmark accreditation, which has also changed and needs a bit of a tidy up, Tony (my hubby) is taking on this challenge.
