Rochester to Strand Trip Cancelled

Since the conditions amount to force 4, this trip is cancelled on safety grounds. Watch out for the next good tide on a better day.

Pool session tonight (15th Feb) - CANCELLED

I'm really sorry, but the pool has just called me (14:30) and told me that their lifeguard has fallen over and broken her ankle.  They've been unable to find a replacement lifeguard.Unfortunately they won't accept one of our lifeguards - only their own vetted employees - and so I have to cancel tonight's session.I'm really sorry about that - please book on the next available slot, and I look forward to seeing you on the next one.

Working hard

Good to see people at the work day today, making progress on the new building!  Apologies to those I didn't get in the photo, you were probably moving too fast for me to catch you ;-)

On the air

Our very own Jon Lock will be on the radio representing Maidstone Canoe Club tomorrow afternoon (Friday 28th Jan) from 1:30pm - 2:00pm!  He's on the Paul Edwards "Bit in the Middle" show - give it a listen, maybe even message in to the show and say hi!  (If you ask nicely, Jon might even autograph your paddle)
