It's the big Medway Clean-Up this weekend - all the Canoe Clubs who use the river (plus fishing Clubs, boaters, and other river users) will be out picking up whatever detritus is lying around. There's a rumour the BBC might be covering it, so if you turn up you may even be on the telly! Bin-bags etc. will be provided - meet at the Club on Sunday at the usual time (9:30).
A fantastically sunny day on the Mole today - if you missed it for some reason, here are some photos courtesy of Ian:
Unfortunately Richard isn’t able to take boats to the pool for the May session, so we’ll have to use roof racks. If you’ve got space on your roof rack, please let Lee know so he can help everyone get boats down there. Thanks!
Water levels look reasonable for tomorrow's paddle - see you there.
The sun is shining, and everyone‘s out paddling! The newsletter deadline is coming up in a few weeks, so it would be great to hear about what you’ve been up to over the last couple of months. The newsletter only works because of you lovely people, so please jot something down and send it over! Trips, gear reviews, thoughts, poetry - all welcome!
If you can't make the Banff Mountain Film Festival in Tunbridge Wells tomorrow, check out the Reel Paddling Film Festival hosted by Kent Canoes! May 6th, at the Marlin Site in Yalding. Demo boats and archery also available!
Unless you are running the London Marathon you should be paddling the Mole, details on the calendar!
