POSTPONED - Easy River Group - Refresher session II for open boaters

Unfortunately we will have to postpone this event until we have a little more water!

It also seemed to be a difficult time for many so a rearrangement will hopefully give others a chance of coming along.

At the moment we only have 2 people signed up for this trip . You will have noticed that the river levels are extremely low at the moment , particularly for open boats . Can I suggest we cancel this trip, and I will rearrange when the river levels have risen . Please can you contact me to confirm you have received this message. Rob G
