Firework Night Paddle November 7th

Remember, remember, the (er) 7th of November! 

This year our bonfire night paddle will be on Friday November 7th. We will be starting from Furnivall and meeting up with our sister club Edge before paddling down to Putney to watch the Bishops Park fireworks display from the water.

Due to the tidal conditions on the night, we regret that this year this paddle will be for experienced paddlers only. Please arrive at the club at 6:30 to be on the water at 7pm sharp.Also please note that due to this paddle, our normal Thursday paddle on the 6th will not take place.See you on the 7th to finish our Thames paddling season with a bang!
