The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up

... is the title of the best-selling book by Marie Kondo, who is, believe it or not, a tidying-up consultant.  That's right - tidying up is now an actual paid-money job.  [Feel free to insert your own old-man grumble about millenials here]

Sadly, back in the real world, no-one is paying us to tidy up the boat shed.  It would be lovely, therefore, if we could put the boats back in the correct rack.  The racks are conveniently numbered; so are the boats.  It's like Snap - just match the numbers on the boats to the numbers on the racks!  

Obviously it's not you that's putting them back in the wrong place - it's those pesky Other People - but all the same, please try ;-)


Summer Beginner Courses

We've just added new beginner course dates!  Friday 19th JulySunday 21st July, Saturday 3rd August, Saturday 10th August, Wednesday 4th September (then 11th, 18th, 25th), and Saturday 7th September - get in quick, they're going fast this year!

Tell us what you want, what you really really want.

Scary. Ginger. Sporty. Baby. Posh. Yes, all kinds of people want to come to the pool session. Unless you’re actually at the Spice Girls reunion at Wembley tomorrow, you should come too!

Summer News

With an inexpensive waterproof case, you can take your mobile phone or tablet on the river and read the newsletter while you float along!  Enjoy!

Boat Storage

Would the owner of the light green Broadland 15 Canoe left in the main store at the club please contact me.   Thanks.

Equipment Repairs

If you notice any gear - boats, paddles, buoyancy aids - that needs a bit of TLC, please drop Lee a line.  Alternatively, there's an equipment log book upstairs by the parking terminal - just write in a description of the problem, and the boat, and it will be repaired in due course.

Protip: Logbook entries like "Blue kayak not working" are unlikely to get sorted out.
