Wychavon Kayak and Canoe Club operate on a beautiful part of the River Avon in Worcestershire. The river at Pershore gets a lot of River traffic and the banks are used heavily by walkers and fishermen. So litter can detract from its beauty.
We have finally agreed a date to do an end of season litter pick. … read more?

When we went to our first session we knew we would love it.
They provide you with kayaks, paddles, spray decks and helmets and they also help you to alter your foot pedals so the boats fit you properly. Even if you have your own kit you can still borrow things from them.
Often there are ‘try it now’ sessions where you just try it out and see if you like paddling at the club.
If you’re new then they try to help you out as much as possible. You feel welcome at the club; if you’re new or you’ve been there a while.
All the members are really nice and try to help you as much as possible and sometimes let you try out their boats so you have a rough idea abut what you would like to paddle in.
The actual lessons are great, because you sometimes go down to the weir or if not you learn how to do strokes properly. You feel very comfortable whilst on the water, because of being with them and you feel safe.
The boats they let you go in are very easy to steer and good for beginners. You look forward to using your kit and boat just because it makes you feel good in something that is yours. You always want to go to the next session. They are so fun.
I would recommend this club because they are really good with new people.

I started because it was fun, different and really enjoyable. We’d tried a few clubs before we found WKCC but it is definitely the best. The idea of being on the water on a beautiful sunny day excites me, especially as the other members are really supportive and helpful.
At the first ‘Try It Now’ session we did, I was worried at first. When we got on the water, I felt unstable and helpless but I soon got the hang of it . The games we played helped improve our skills and reflexes.
The other members are supportive, patient and I always feel like if someone fell in, they’d be at the ready in seconds to help you. If you have any questions about kit, technique or if you just need help, they will always have a helpful tip or advice.
Last minute paddle. Saturday 20 June from Fladbury to PRSC, meet Fladbury Jubilee Car Park 8pm latest ready to paddle. Depending on how things go we may stop at pub. If you need boat please make arrangements to collect in good time. Let me know if you are coming. Clive P
The day started a lot calmer than the previous day, we awoke quite early having had a reasonable nights sleep. Not wanting to rush and just go with the flow, we surfaced and sorted out breakfast, filtered water for the day, broke camp, tidied up and headed off about 7am. … read more?
