This Sunday saw the end of the 2020 season of canoe & kayak hire. The weather was glorious, 76 paddlers plus 3 dogs took to the water and the afternoon was rounded off with a barbecue for the amazing volunteers and two PCSOs who were passing by.

The perfect end to an extraordinary summer.

It goes without saying that this has been a most unusual period. Ronnie and Mike, together with their team of volunteers, created a COVID-safe environment that allowed the hire to operate for eight weeks. The Society is exceptionally grateful to Ronnie, Mike and the team for operating the hire and, of course, to all our supporters that made use of the facility and coped patiently and respectfully with the additional safety measures.

Let us hope that the world returns to more normal times in 2021 and the canoe & kayak hire programme goes from strength to strength.
