Please remember to turn the hosepipe tap off once you've finished with it, not just the spray nozzle!  This will prevent any future flooding in the downstairs loo ...

What's going on?

What is going on?  What have you been doing?  And, more importantly, why haven't you sent anything about it to the newsletter?  

Fear not - there's still time!  If you get it to me before next Wednesday, it will make the Winter Edition.  (If not, there may not be a Winter Edition ...)

River level Sunday

The river is likely to remain reasonably high on Sunday morning, depending on rainfall.  The food warning remains in place:

As always, please make sure that your abilities match the conditions you find on the water, and if in doubt, ask!

Final Pool Session of 2022

We've booked in another pool session at the usual pool (Weald Leisure Centre, Cranbrook) on Tuesday 15th November. This will be the final pool session of 2022, so make the most of it!  More pool sessions in 2023, although it's currently not confirmed where they will be held.

Please book online.

More Rain = More River!

Those of you who have been out & about recently may have noticed there's more river than usual!  Depending on rainfall over the next couple of days, Sunday's regular paddle may not be suitable for everyone.  Please check the website on Saturday afternoon before coming down if you're not sure of your ability in these conditions.

New Paddlesport Instructors!

Huge congratulations to our new club Paddlesport Instructors Carolyn H, Michaela W, Jon L and Tom P!  And a big shout out to Escape Outdoors for all their expert coaching this year!

First Aid Help

The Club could really use your help!  We currently don't have a first aid officer.  The role can be as much or as little as you want - as a minimum, keeping the first aid kit topped up, but if you wanted to expand the role to arranging (or running) first aid training or anything else, then it's yours to run with!  If you've a background in healthcare - nurse, paramedic, brain surgeon, St John's ambulance trainer, etc. - then even better!  

Please contact Catherine D - - to chat about what's involved.
