Site Activity

How Do Folks
For those of you planning on paddling during the day this week you will notice that Telford & Wrekin engineers will be on site replacing the measurement equipment that is dotted around the site. They will be using a tracked piling machine this should only  an issue the day that they are putting the hole in on the road between the upper and lower car-parks. On this day you will have to park on the top car park.
See y’all on the river…

Social Distancing – Work Party

How do.

Dont be scared off by the word work eh.

Location:

Club site at 9:30am Sunday 28th June for a couple of hours and a paddle after for those who wish.

Work party to sort out steps and foliage around top car park.

So bring:

Spades/Shovels
Wheel barrows
Garden loppers/pruning tools.

Site Open

Happy Friday.

Please note the heavy machinery is finished works and site is open.

The beach egress is via ramp down the “beach” as the top part of the eddy has had to be rebuilt after a couple maybe 3 years plus of erosion which left a >6ft drop where the beach access used to be. This works has been done to protect the trees that shield the beach area from the full force of the flow.

Steps will be added in a few weeks.

Please continue to adhere to social distancing.

Paddling and Current Situation.

Hi Folks,
with the easing of the lockdown and the ability to be able to paddle please please remember as per the guidance from the government and the BCU please heed the social distancing guidelines.

Paddling can take place alone, or with others from the same household, or with no more than one other person from outside of the household. Paddlers must practice social distancing at all times and maintain a distance apart of at least 2 metres. People from different households should not travel in the same car. Paddlers should aim to avoid busy areas and take great care to maintain social distancing at access and egress points.
Safety and paddling well within capabilities; Only competent and experienced paddlers should be on the water independently. Paddlers are reminded that they are entirely responsible for their own safety at all times and that currently the resources of the waterways authorities and the emergency services are very limited. Paddlers should take care to make responsible decisions, paddle in familiar locations, and favourable conditions.

Yesterday afternoon according to one of the locals there were about 20 paddlers on the water. These were not all Club members, some will have paddled down to or up to the site. But in the eyes of passers by canoeists did not appear to be social distancing so please take care  as we don’t want any unnecessary bad publicity….saying that enjoy your time on or in the water that you have in the coming weeks…..
