We’re going to start the New Year the way we want it to continue, with the first paddle of the year taking place on Saturday 2nd January, on The Chelmer, starting at Paper Mill Lock: https://braintreecanoeingclub.co.uk/favourite-paddles/local-paddles/paper-mill-lock/.
We will meet at 10.30am at Paper Mill & get going around 11.00am and paddle down to Hoe Mill Lock and back, stopping on the way for a sandwich; please bring your own food/hot drinks and ensure you have waterproofs/warm kit etc.
There is parking on the side of the road. A river license is also required (around £5), but that can be bought on the day.
Currently the weather forecast is cool and wet with a stiff South East breeze (Sunday is not much better either). If the weather is very poor we may cancel the trip, so keep one eye on the club web site.
