Purley Canoe Club celebrated its achievement of the Clubmark Award on the 30th January 2013 with a party at our monthly social evening.
The award reflects the safe and successful running of the Club which they have been working towards for the last few years and it is awarded by Canoe England. Councillor Donald Speakman and Lynn Barker, Canoe England Paddlesport Development Officer, were among the many guests.
Guests enjoyed slideshows of some of the Club’s many canoe trips. There was also the opportunity to try out your fitness on an ergonomic paddling machine and to view some of the Club’s kayaks and equipment. The evening was rounded off with a celebratory cake made especially for the evening.
The Club will now be working hard to maintain this accreditation. If you would like to try canoeing and see if it is the sport for you, then please contact the Club for more details about our activities or to book into one of our sessions which are advertised in our diary of events.
