Free Canoe – From Richard Painter – Hi, We have bought a bungalow in Garsington and we have found in the loft area over the garage a red fibre glass canoe that seems to be in good order [without a paddle]. We will willingly give the canoe to anybody that wants it provided they pick it up. I wonder if you might have an interested party within the club. I am keen to dispose of the canoe ASAP as the bungalow is going to be demolished next week to make way for a new house. Let me know if you interested and I’ll pass on the contact details, Simon.
Adventure Plus Westminster Canoe Challenge – http://www.adventureplus.org.uk/canoe/ These guys will be storing their boats on our site on Easter Monday (13th April) as they make their way from Witney to Westminster raining money for Adventure Plus. If you’d like to join them for any part of their trip let me know and I’ll put you in touch.
