The 2022 season of canoe and kayak hire from Coed Gwilym Park has been cancelled with immediate effect. This is mainly due to the deterioration of the canoe store and its contents since the loss of the roof in the storms at the start of the year. The rain has damaged many of the items in the store and we are concerned that this could lead to safety issues for our volunteers and for those wishing to use the service.

The Society is most grateful to the wonderful volunteers, particularly Ronnie and Mike, who have continued the canoe hire under the very difficult conditions of the year.

We will redouble our efforts to have the roof repaired, and the equipment serviced and replaced as necessary so that we can open the service in Easter 2023.

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused, and thank you for supporting the hire service over recent months.
