We are Now Open for limited sessions
Following the Government announcement on May 13th 2020 we have worked hard to change and adapt our Outdoor Activity Centre so it is as safe as it can possibly be.
There are links to Govt Guidelines we are following below and we are also following the guidance from our National Governing Body British Canoeing. The 'standard' information is also listed below
From the 1st June - small groups are allowed. BUT (unlike some other centres) - WE WILL NOT PUT YOU IN A GROUP of people you don't know. We are maintaining our book in advance system, and all the systems set up and mentioned here.
To help re-assure you we would like to point out some unique elements we have to help keep everyone safe:
We are not 'open to the public'. We will strictly limit people to their own time slots. (Some public car parks have been busy, with no 'control'. We totally control our private site, with strict arrival times booked in advance).
All sessions MUST be booked in advance - forms are sent electronically and payments done in advance to avoid unnecessary contact
We have set up the site with spaced out parking, 1 way systems, areas for unused and a separate area for used kit
We have over 50+ boards and 100+ b'aids, so you will not be using kit that someone else has used, we will rotate it around so as well as being cleaned it will have been stood unused/untouched for a week.
The activities we are running are:
Private Tuition (1 on 1)
Family Tuition if you are from the same household we can teach up to 5 of you
A group of 5 that YOU choose - We will not put you into a group of people that you don't know, but if you can organise some friends, the price comes down per person ( see details here)
Hire (household groups, or you can meet up with up to 5 of your friends - as per Govt guidelines)
Launch (you can book to use our lovely safe, private car park and launch facilities)
All sessions are booked in advance and you will be allocated an arrival time. We are taking everyone's safety seriously and will be limiting the amount of people at all times.

How we have come to this decision and what we have done to make it as safe as possible
Following all the information provide by both the UK Government, British Canoeing and other watersports governing bodies. All of these can be found on the links below. There is no point in re-writing them all, but the key changes we have made include:
We have re-written sections of our operating procedures and Risk Assessment measures to include the changes necessary to adapt for Covid-19
These changes have then been put into practice at our site including:
booking systems - book in advance only
staggering users into allocated time slots
cleaning areas and cleaning systems in place
we are the only user group - so you are safe in a 'private' setting
The advise is that users can access our clean Toilets, but on advise we are not using the changing rooms - so come dressed appropriately.
Please contact Kim if you have any queries, or would like to book
