In view of the changes to the BCU star awards syllabi, the programme has been adapted to provide events that cater for the changes, particularly for the 3* award, and Paddle Power has been introduced. A document with more information regarding the new club training structure is available from the adviser, Roger Harris.

The annual programme usually increases with further dates for other opportunities. Further dates and more detailed information will be circulated by email.

During the winter they run a canoe polo league in the Oxted swimming pool and are often looking for members.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
