As of 1st October the Aquadrome car park closes daily at 6pm; this coupled with coach availability and ever decreasing daylight means that this Wednesday (24th September) will be the last mid-week recreational session of the year. Over the last 5 months, Wednesday evening recreational sessions have run continuously. Thanks to all members who attended the sessions particularly the coaches/experienced paddlers who ran/supervised the sessions. Mid-week sessions will restart again in April/May next year. Sunday recreational sessions (10am till 12pm) will continue as normal throughout the winter months.
