Great club trip on the Avon paddling from Stratford to Bidford. 6 paddlers, 10 miles, 5 weirs, 1 lock and a lot of rain
We were delighted to support Major Mick Stanley in his homemade craft Tintanic II as he paddled along the Grand Union canal on 29 July as part of his 100 mile fundraising trip in aid of Alzheimer's UK https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/majormick-tintanic. Members of the club accompanied him on the water while others watched from the bank.
