Following a trial membership or trial session, membership is renewed annually based upon your start date. The subscription fees are reviewed annually by the committee and reflects the cost of running the club which includes, but is not limited to, the following: affiliations, insurance, compulsory training, and required disbursements costs. All club officials are volunteers who do not receive remuneration.
The annual membership levels are currently:
|Adult membership.||Individuals aged 18 or over at the date of annual subscription start.||£25|
|Junior membership.||Individuals under the age of 18 at the date annual subscription start.||£12.50|
|Family membership.||Up to two adults and three juniors resident at the same address.||£60|
Prospective members are welcome to join us for an introduction event (at a one-off cost of £10). Following completion of this event, you will be able to continue with the club on a 30 day free membership to see if you like what we do (session fees, as below apply). If you wish to continue paddling with us on any further events after this trail, you will be asked to join us as an adult, junior or family membership.
Each session/event has a fee which is required before the events attendance. Club events are organised and communicated via our members portal and email.
The regular session fees are currently:
|High Rid||If you have all of your own kit (boat, paddle and soft kit)||£2.50|
|High Rid||If you need to borrow any club kit (£5 Kit fee + £2.50 session fee)||£7.50|
|Pool||Fee is the same regardless of Kit usage||£7.50|
There is no club charge for trips, if however you need to borrow any kit then there will be a kit fee of £5, depending on the trip there may be additional fees such as parking and if on Waterways such as canals then you may need a permit if you’re not a British Canoeing Member or waterways license holder, the events coordinator will be able to advise accordingly.
Our events calendar can be viewed in our Members area and it is important that the email address you provide on the registration system is checked regularly because we advertise all our events through email (Event notification opt-in is required). We also have a public Facebook group where we post general club information. In addition, we have a private Facebook Group that our members can become a member of once they are an annual member, which we share more details on events, trips and club activities. We also allow parents of junior members to join this private group. Peer group events are advertised there and reminders about club events that have been advertised via email are also commonly seen.
