For those who may not have attended the Canoe Club BBQ before, below are the locations and details (clickable links to Google Maps).
The long range forecast for next weekend is promising, so fingers crossed!
Camping is available Friday-Sunday nights; the BBQ is organised for the Saturday evening, but you will need to make your own arrangements (food/drinks etc) if you want to do anything on Friday or Sunday.
River Paddle details
- Saturday 27th: River Paddle – Papermill to Heybridge
Start: 11:00 Paper Mill (there are toilets here and a coffee shop)
Lunch: Hoe Mill Lock or Rickets Lock (bring your own food/drink)
Finish: 15:30 at Heybridge
We will leave the cars at Paper Mill and ferry back to them at the end of the paddle. Ferry time is roughly 20 minutes each way.
DO NOT park your car at Heybridge Basin lock, you will get fined (quick drop off is ok). There is a free car park 2 minutes walk away. Cross the lock to get to the BBQ and camp site (take care when doing so, or if escorting children)
There will be light refreshments and cakes on arrival at the site, with changing/shower facilities available. The main BBQ event will kick off in early evening.
We look forward to seeing you there
