If you wish to use the punt which links the Club to the pontoon, please ensure that it is left tied up to the pontoon so that it can be used irrespective of the tide.
The next session is on Sunday 16th July, 10am-12pm. It would be really helpful if those planning on attending could let Melody know at firstname.lastname@example.org which will help us to plan sessions more effectively as well as being able to inform people of any cancellations due to the weather. Please ensure children are there in good time and changed ready to start at the times specified below. We do have wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets for children to borrow but, if anyone does have their own, it may be worth them bringing them along. Dates for the season are as follows:

Up the Creek – River Cruise
We now have three available spaces on this fabulous river cruise on 24 August. The trip is on board the Enterprise boat and is an evening cruise to those parts of the Fal which are not generally accessible unless the tides are high enough. The trip costs just Â£14, including a pasty, there is a bar on board but you may bring a bottle with you! The trip lasts about 3 hours. It is a great opportunity to see the beautiful river and all her secret creeks! Contact the admin office asap if you would like to go.
Gardening at the Club
Wednesday 19 July at 9.30am
The next session for gardening is Wednesday 19 July. The â€˜regular teamâ€™ have been a little thin on the ground for the last couple of sessions and we would really like to get to grips with vegetation on the bank. Lots of you will be thinking of boating and holidays at this time of year but please come along for just an hour or so to help us. As usual dress of the day is sensible footwear and gloves and a few hand tools and loppers if you have them! Coffee will be provided. Any queries in the meantime please contact Rachel 01326 212185.
