Members Area

The Club uses Wild Apricot software to run a members database. It is possible to set up membership and keep your own details up to date on-line. The Club's trips are administered through this database and members can 'sign-up' and pay on-line. It is always possible to do all of this on a Thursday evening as well.

Later Session

The weekly cost is £3 for members, £4 for visitors, and an extra £1 to hire equipment.
For reasons of insurance, non-members can only attend three sessions as a visitor.

Membership cards need to be presented each time you paddle so that a quick reference to your ICE number can be made. Coaches who have not been involved in the evenings junior session (or in the winter) will pay £2 to paddle.

Junior sessions

£3.50 per week Included in this is £1 which will go into a fund to purchase new club equipment.

Trips and Weekends

The cost of trips and weekends away is advertised at the time they are offered. The Club is keen to enable as many members to participate as fully as possible and looks to keep cost as low as possible. Discounts have been made available in cases of hardship and such an approach to a committee member will be treated in confidence.
