Dear all,

Just a quick reminder that between now and Mid-December British Canoeing will be delivering 8 more Safeguarding workshops across England. The purpose of these workshops is to equip all Club Welfare Officers with the skills and knowledge in order to undertake their role in line with British Canoeing’s policies and procedures. Specifically the workshops will concentrate on four main areas:

1.       The role of the CWO and who / how to appoint.

2.       What do good policies look like?

3.       Policies in practice – how to implement and review.

4.       General Q&A session around Safeguarding

Clubs are invited to send their CWOs, anyone interested in taking up this vital club role, or senior position holders in their committee structure who may be required to be involved in safeguarding cases.  Coaches may also attend should they so wish.

Your closest session will be held on the evening of the 14th November at Langford Village Hall, Maldon between 6:30pm and 9:30pm.  To register please follow this link:


We are really keen to engage and support our Clubs in this area so it would be great to see some of you there!

Kind regards,


Alan Page
Compliance and Safeguarding Officer

Safety Message!

E-mail sent by Member 182c56c, Friday, 11th October 2019 @ 1:27pm

Hi Paul

We have two orange weed boat lifters that work on the Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation.

You can’t miss them, they are low in the water with big lifting forks sticking out the front

We use them to remove weed to keep the river open for boaters.

Incredibly we have had problems with canoeists rushing past the boat between the forks and the bank.

Visibility from the weed lifter is not great and if they were to hit a canoeist I dread to think what could happen.

Could you send a message out asking canoeist to take care when passing the weed lifters.

Slow down, make sure they have been seen and pass with care.

Thank you


Kind regards
