Axe Vale Canoe Club opening their doors on the final Saturday of May

Axe Vale Canoe Club are opening their doors to potential new recruits to the world of canoeing and kayaking, writes Alexa Baker.

The club is to run an open starter session on Saturday (May 31) as part of the Canoe England Go Canoeing scheme.

The event begins at 9.30am and runs until noon and the session is open to anyone wanting to try kayaking or canoeing (age from about 11 upwards) and will be run at Axe Vale Canoe Club.

The location of the club is EX12 4AA.

The idea is to get people paddling on the Axe Estuary with a broader plan to switch to the sea if the weather permits.
