The British Canoeing Club Winter Challenge takes place from 1st November to 29th February. The idea is to record how far club members paddle during the winter and also the number of different places the club paddles during these 4 months.
There must be at least 3 club members present for a paddle to count towards the challenge.
If you paddle during these months, let Lynda know (firstname.lastname@example.org)

All members will be very welcome at Dereham Canoe Group’s AGM at 6.30pm on Thursday 26th November at Mattishall Scout Hut, where we’ll celebrate the past year with slideshows and awards, as well as drinks and snacks. Please let Lynda know if you’ll be coming so we know what refreshments to bring. (email: email@example.com). We hope to see lots of members there.
Dereham Canoe Group is run by its members for its members. We’d very much like to have some new members of the Committee to help run the Group. It doesn’t matter if you’re a novice, an expert, or just enjoy watching from the bank – what we need are your enthusiasm, ideas, and skills. At present we’d particularly welcome someone with administrative skills who can help to take bookings for river and pool lessons. If you want to know more about what joining the Committee would involve, you’re welcome to talk to the chairman, James Brown; email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07957 605640
