Hi,
 
Further to discussions this morning, I took some more photos. It really needs pulling out and cleaning up because it probably hasn’t been touched in 15 years or more. I’d like it to go to a good home more than anything else, but if you think it’s too far gone, then please let me know!

Go Paddling 2019 Focus Group

E-mail sent by Member 182c56c, Wednesday, 24th October 2018 @ 11:17am

This email is from Russ Smith British Canoing ADO

Hi All
 
Jenny and I are looking to pull a Focus group together for  new Go Paddling offer for 2019 . I’m keen to get your input and support to do this successfully. We feel that getting support at a local level is going to be key if we want to make any changes and improve  the offer for 2019.
 
We are looking  to run a focus group in London/ Lee Valley Area in late Nov 28th or 29th , so that we can get some feedback and get the support of providers to start help us shaping the offer.
 
To support this we are also looking at updating the club/Centre Go Paddling provider booklet, information available to providers online and an easier way for providers to get involved and access the programme.
 
Focus group session:
Why we want to do this? What are we hoping to achieve:
As we look to build on the Go Paddling offer for 2019 . We want to improve the offer and make it easier for more providers to get on board. Alongside this understanding what support and services are needed for the people on the ground. How can we build a network and range of services that will allow knowledge to easiest be shared and support those providers that are wanting to introduce more people into the sport. I guess ultimately it’s about finding out if there are any barriers and making improvements in these quickly so we can do a renewed relaunch in the new year. From the conversations I’ve had internally I already have some ideas around this but I ideally want a group of people that I could use as a sounding board to check and challenge our plans and ensuring they are right for what people need on the ground when delivering introductory activity. Plus what we will look  to do to win over the hearts and minds of new people. Next year I want to try and do a big drive to try and increase the take up of Go Paddling how we do this and the way in which we do this needs to really land well. Bring together a group of different providers that we can use as a sounding board and support us with our Go Paddling offer and resource developments
 
Who do we want at the focus group session?
Ideally a mix of providers but ensuring there is a good representation from clubs and commercial providers at the heart of this group. The key thing is to try and get some dynamic people that can help us (be critical but solution based friends).
 
In an ideal world we could do with 2 or 3 from each of below :
- Clubs: representations from a couple of clubs can be a mix of those that currently run intro programmes or are interested in running introductory activity (can be a mix of providers that have engaged with GC in the past or not) Ideally a mix of clubs with different interests (recreational, multi interests, discipline specific)
- Centres: Again it would be good to get a mix of types of centres, from those like Lee Valley that operate commercially and have a range of things to those that are smaller ones that work locally with schools etc. Also be good to have some reps from Hire/ tour operators.
- Independents and other groups:  It would be also to get some representation from Groups /coaches that are linked into delivering introductory activity
 
So with this in mind and if you are keen to join us or know someone maybe  ?   .
Can you let me know which day works for you 28th or 29th November. If possible by 12th November
The aim would be to start 10am , Venue - TBA .
If you cannot but have any thoughts / Ideas please let us know  
Thanks
 
Jenny and Russ

Hi Russell 

Due to circumstances beyond our control the Out There Club based on 
Colchester has ceased canoeing activities. 
We have a large itinerary of Kayak equipment that we are looking to sell 
or donate to organisations in our area to promote the sport 

Do you have any means to pass this information to groups or organisations 
that may be interested?
