“Pendle Paddlers were recently lucky to receive a grant from the Shepherds Street Trust to assist in increasing our fleet of Canoes, to enable us to offer more opportunities for young people and youth groups to experience our great sport.
As part of this we said it was important for our young people to assist in fitting out our new Canoes with buoyancy bags, lacing etc and learning the trade. So in the middle of October we held a workshop fitting out our new Canoes purchased from @GoKayakingNorthWest in Runcorn.”
