News on river sessions, grants, new quiz and more..

We hope you are all keeping well during these difficult times.We thought we would let you all know that your management committee is still active during this temporary shutdown to secure your club’s future! (and give you some good news!).

River Sessions: But first the bad news: There are still no river sessions taking place inline with current government and BC guidance (always subject to change, so keep an eye out for more news in your inbox and on our Facebook page).

Sport England Community Emergency Fund
We are working hard behind the scenes and can reassure all members that despite the fact we do not have any income whatsoever at the moment, and the bills keep coming in,  the club is financially sound. We have just received the good news of a substantial grant of £937 from Sport England to cover some of our outgoings. This will be used to pay a big chunk (but not) of our boathouse building and contents insurance, due soon.

And More Good News! – Sport England Community Fund
Before the Covid-19 outbreak we submitted plans to Sport England to insulate and heat part of the boathouse so we can use it all year round. We can announce that we have been successful with yet another grant application, this one for £28,000.  This is on hold at the moment due to Covid-19 and is still in it’s very early stages,so more details will be released as soon as we are able.

This further grant, so close on the back of the jetty grant from North Lincolnshire council, shows we are dedicated to bringing you one of the best kayaking facilities in the region!
