So we LOVE canoeing! And we want LOTS more people to join in!
Alongside our good friends at the CRT, we set about running a canoe club that is free and accessible to everyone. Now we have evolved into the Bootle Canoe club, we meet at the Lock & Quay and head off for a splash down (or up!) the canal.
We don’t just splash ether – we take litter pickers sometimes and have a good clean-up of the water which usually turns into a competition!
We also get to enjoy some fab trips to the Liverpool Watersports Centre and other canals. Take a look at the film of our trip to Burnley for the opening of the Foulridge tunnel – the first time paddlers had been allowed to canoe through the mile long channel!
