Hi everyone, hope you’re not too busy in the lead up to the Christmas period and are still managing to get on the water!
The dates for our spring 2019 pools sessions have been released and are available for booking, more information can be found on the courses section of our website found here.
The pool sessions are a great way for paddlers to practice vital skills such as how to capsize and maybe even how to roll in a warm controlled environment.
If you have any questions about this that you can not find answers to on the page do not hesitate to send our pool session coordinator an email on [email protected]enham-scc.com.
We hope all that attended the river trips that have been run enjoyed them and are looking forward to the next ones!
An update on the pool sessions. There remains plenty of places on the pool sessions, particularly the 14 and under session next week and the one starting on the 27th November 2018.
|Short Code||Session 1 Date||Start Time||End Time||Places Remaining|
The pool session courses are run as a block of 3 sessions, over 3 consecutive weeks with coaching tailored towards individuals needs whether that be building confidence when falling out of a kayak or progressing all the way to learning to roll the kayak back up using the paddle.
The pool sessions are held at Stonar School, Melksham. On each evening there are 2 courses, commencing 19:30 and 20:15 hrs respectively. There are 8 places available in each time slot. Each course (3 sessions) will cost £20 for club members (or £7 for an individual session where offered) and £30 for non-members (or £11 for an individual session where offered).
Prior to booking your place, please first read the notes below (particularly with respect to eligibility), then fill out the pool sessions booking form linked here (If you can be flexible please identify a first and second choice of time slot) and send it along with a cheque made payable to “CSCC”, to the address on the form.

The additional cost to non-members includes a temporary membership charge covering the pool sessions only.
We hope everyone has had a good Summer season and is looking forward to the Winter Paddling season whether they are going to be running white water rivers or going our for some refreshing early morning paddles! We have a couple of event announcements that can be seen below.
The 2018 Spuds and Sparklers evening is on the 3rd November.
This is a great event, bring the family and any friends too.
Watch the Monkton Park firework display reflected in the river from our veranda
With a real bonfire to toast marshmallows on.
Booking is essential please, I have to order the spuds – This can be done by contacting us on [email protected]
Alongside our announcement of spuds and sparklers comes us getting a new storage container to store kayaks in, this will make room for our newly purchased kayaks.
At the next working party we will be needing to prepare the land that the container is going to be situated on. Please see the below image for details about the working party.
Thank you to all the hard work put in by all of our volunteers and committee members and we look forward to seeing some of you at our upcoming events.
On Friday 12th at October 6pm CSCC are having a Social evening in line with our policy of keeping up events throughout the winter months.
Join us for a bit with a bit of crafty fun (very easy) a scrummy fish meal and a good chat and catch up.
If the weather is good then a short paddle first to work up an appetite.
This is an RNLI event we are signed up or it so really want it to be well attended.
Link to the RNLI https://rnli.org/fish-supper
Price of £6 is to include a contribution to the RNLI.
Although we are only a river club, many of us use our coastal waters, it is a very worthy charity, so feel free to contribute any more pennies to our collection.
Usual plea for numbers to the event for catering purposes.
Contact Meryl (07929971447)or Julie or post on FB and [email protected]
This is short notice but after the success of Mark’s roast lunch recently we thought it would be great to repeat it while the weather is still warm.
The RYA has put out a call to all clubs for members to take to their tenders and dinghies this weekend and have a shore and marina clean up, extending it to rivers as it all ends in the sea.
This year has had a huge wake up call concerning rubbish in the sea, plastics in particular, we can do our bit in a small way.
Hope to see lots join in, and Mark’s dinners are a must.
‘Tails of the Riverbank’ is the event postponed from 23rd. Aug.
All participants and families of the courses invited.
Thursday 23rd Aug 6pm –Tails of the River bank – Postponed until Tuesday 11th September!
Tuesday 11th Sept – Tails of the River Bank followed by AWARDS night – a paddle to find different pictures of tails that are floating in the river and identify them. Can dress up as tales of riverbank characters?
