Canoe Trip – 22nd March

This is a good opportunity to have a social outing in stunning scenery on the River Severn.  Open boating often allows non paddlers to get involved in our trips, children, friends and partners and perhaps to entice them into our wonderful world! 

I’d like an initial indication of who will be interested as we need to make sure we have enough club boats, and enough transport to get them to the river.  Also, depending on the interest we may change the trip which is currently billed as Ironbridge to Bridgnorth.  This is a lovely trip but has the challenge of Jackfield rapids (safe but possible wet as we found last year!).  There are several alternatives depending on the take up we could change this to be Bridgnorth to Arley or Arley to Bewdley, both pretty trips.  Let me know if you have a preference.
