You can still buy BBQ tickets during Tuesday’s river session!

Fancy Dress Paddle & BBQ 2021 
is Thursday 30th September!

Don’t miss our annual end-of-river-season Fancy Dress (and hopefully Torchlit) Paddle and BBQ! We didn’t have one last year due to Covid.

For the BBQ afterwards, we need to know numbers, so please book and pay for you food in advance. It is £3 per person for the BBQ (the paddle is free). Please book with Jean at a Tuesday or Thursday session.

Then dress up yourself and your boat however you like (but keep it safe, you still need your buoyancy aid!).

We say “hopefully torchlit”! as usually include lots of lights in our designs as we paddle back in the dark, but we are a week earlier this year than usual, so it may not quite be dark! (don’t forget your head torch though, just in case!).

Please be at the river for our normal start time of 6:00pm, but don’t forget to allow plenty of time to decorate your boat. We will have judging on the bank before the paddle starts. There might even be a prize! Then we’ll  paddle upstream past the railway bridge and maybe return in the dark!!

Please add your name to the attendance list in the boathouse. This will also reserve you your boat of choice (kayak or canoe) on a first come first served basis

Then it’s BBQ time outside the boathouse!
