Newsletter May 2016

Hi All,
Here's an update on what the club has in store for it's members in the next few months

Thursday evening paddling
& new paddler taster sessions

Thursday evening paddling sessions will begin on 5th May from 6:30 - 8:30pm. These are open sessions for members with a reasonable level of experience  (1 Star and above). While coaches are normally on the water, unlike Tuesdays, Thursdays are not structured coaching sessions and generally involve a short trip up or down the Waveney from the Staithe.

This year we are also offering new paddlers the opportunity to join us on the first Thursday of every month starting from 2nd June as an introductory taster session to the club. If you know anyone who may be interested in attending one of these, they should email in advance for details.


Beccles Lido sessions

Dates have just been confirmed for summer sessions at Beccles Lido.

Dates are:
5th & 26th of June. 10th & 31st of July. 14th & 28th of August.

These are all Sundays and the sessions are 19:00 to 20:00. It worth remembering that unlike the Harleston pool sessions there is no equipment at the pool, so you will need to bring your own or borrow it from the club. If you could arrange to bring it yourselves that would be helpful.


Cardington Weekend with Lowestoft Canoe Club

We will be joining Lowestoft CC for our annual weekend at Cardington White Water Centre from 24th to the 26th of June.
This is a great weekend offering a gentle and enjoyable introduction to moving water paddling.
Camping is available on Friday and Saturday nights. You will be informed of pricing etc. in due course.

Other News

Bungay Duck Race

An event to raise funds to protect Falcon Meadow (across the river from the clubhouse) on Sunday 10th of July. This will also be an opportunity to promote the club to local people. With this in mind we are looking for volunteers to help on the day. Please email if you are available. Paddlers will need to be at least 2* and over 16 years of age.
The Duck Race day will run from 11am and finish around 5pm (allowing for clear up).

Summer Paddling Trips

A series of summer touring trips is being planned. You will receive further details as they become available.

Photo Contributions

As some of you will have noticed I have had to recycle previously used photos for this piece. It would be really helpful if, when you attend club events etc., you could take a camera/smart phone along and get images for use on the web site. These can be sent to me as email attachments at
Thanks in advance.
