Want to organise a river trip? You'll need to have a Level 3 coach supporting it. Chat with one of them and then let Wendy know the date and proposed grade of your trip, along with any other info to go on the web-site.
Another way to go about it is to make a suggestion to one of the Trustees and work with us so we can ensure a safe trip.

The Forest of Bradford volunteers [a band of 5 or 6] will be on site to do spiling work [weaving live willow into the bank to create a revetment] on 25,26,27th October. 10.30-3.30PM

Nice early start and wear warm clothes that can get mucky. Wellies or steelies are a good idea.
This is a list of jobs that I’ve seen that need doing. There is the regular PPM list on top of this.

Club Annual General Meeting
This evening, the only evening in the year, there is no planned club session.
The annual general meeting will involve:
Food served at 7.30pm: meat or veggie: please order in advance but the club pays.
Meeting begins 8pm with the following draft agenda, to be firmed up nearer the time:
Review of the year - Chair
Financial report - Treasurer
Other reports -
Awards for outstanding achievements
Election of trustees - Wendy's term as acting chair terminates. Nominees for Chair please. Mark Fairbrass is standing, nominated by Wendy.
All other trustees are happy to continue for at least one year but more trustees are definitely needed so let Wendy know if you have any inclings.
The future of the club will probably then be discussed: development planning consultation.

Darren Clarkson-King speaking at the club
How I accidentally made a living from kayaking
Since 1995 Darren has been paddling around the world, since 2000 he has concentrated his efforts in the Himalayas. From first descents, speed descents and writing books he still manages to run a boutique adventure company – Pure Land Expeditions. We are pleased that he will be visiting us on..... to deliver a talk with highlights about 34 seasons in the Himalaya.
Proceeds after expenses go to help out Darren and we'll post up ticket things when we have more info.
