Club Closed

In light of the latest advice from British Canoeing and the Environment Agency, we will have to abide by their guidance and cease all paddle sport activity until advised otherwise.
I would advise anybody thinking of ignoring this directive to reconsider as doing so would bring the club into disrepute.  I thank you for your cooperation in this matter.  Hopefully the current situation will pass sooner rather than later and we can all go back to enjoying our sport.  The most important thing is to stay safe and look after yourselves and your families and to keep up-to-date with current government advice.

Take care,
Brian Williams

Maidstone Marathon - No Sunday Paddle

It is the Maidstone Marathon on Sunday, please come along and support if you can - any extra help on the day would be much appreciated.

Note this means there will be no General Paddle this Sunday, 17th June!

Fun Session Helpers Needed

Fun Sessions are an important part of what the Club does, both for the local community, and for generating income for the Club.  They're rewarding and fun to do - a great day on the water, helping people (often kids) enjoy canoeing for the first time.  We still need helpers to assist at the following sessions:

Tuesday 12th June, 6:30pm - Scouts

Monday 18th June, 6:30pm - Scouts

Tuesday 19th June, 6:30pm - Scouts

If you can, please do help.  It's not onerous, and it is a good evening out on the water!  Please contact

Membership Reminder

If you have not yet renewed your membership, please do so as soon as possible - look here to download forms, etc..  Key fobs for the clubhouse for those who have not renewed will be disabled on the 14th June.  If you have a key fob you no longer require, please return it to Geoff to get your deposit back!

Geoff's Jubilee!

Our very own Geoff Orford will be paddling as part of the Diamond Jubilee Royal Flotilla this Sunday, 3rd June - make sure you look out for him!
