Hereford Kayak Club
Access to the boat shed and river
The rowing club is closed for all activities until further advised.
What that means we are NOT ALLOWED to use our boat shed or access the river via the club steps.
Are we allowed to paddle?
Following the recent Coronavirus (Covid-19) government announcement regarding new guidance for the national lockdown in England, British Canoeing has received confirmation that paddling for exercise on the waterways is permitted.
We have confirmed with Sport England that collecting personal equipment belonging to an individual, from a facility such as a boathouse, to enable individual exercise is permitted. Under the new guidelines all sports facilities must close. Therefore when collecting personal equipment the facility must be closed for public use and not be used to hire out equipment. Therefore we advise club members that once you have accessed your personal equipment to store it at home and to launch only from a public space.
Remember if you are going to paddle. you can only meet up with one other.
