Event details

This is a joint event between Lakeland Canoe Club, Cumbria Canoeists, Save Our Rivers and the Clean River Kent Campaign group.

It's a follow-up to the successful river clean-up we did in November 2022 in the centre of Kendal. Three main reasons for doing this;

  1. It's an opportunity to make a practical difference to a huge problem
  2. It's a chance to build bridges with other river users, including walkers, anglers and swimmers
  3. It improves the visibility of the club, and paddling as a sport, within our community

Essentially this is just a paddle along the Kent from Staveley to Burneside, collecting litter and rubbish as we go. There's likely to be a kick-off meeting in Staveley, with an update on the work the Clean River Kent Campaign are doing to improve water quality along the whole River Kent catchment.

  1. All litter-pickers (kayakers, canoeists and walkers), meet at Staveley Pavilion at 10am on the 2nd.
  2. Collect bags and litter pickers, aim to set off down river about 10:30+
  3. Meet at the Millenium Green, Burneside about 12:30
  4. Bag up rubbish for disposal, take photos, cakes and drinks. Finish by about 1:30
