Website and Facebook
The club website (www.kingfishercanoeclub.co.uk) has been updated with a new tab – Members Only – under here you’ll find links to both the Trasher and a copy of the Kingfisher Facebook group. Since it’s creation the Facebook group has been great for organizing paddling trips, however we’ve been aware that not everyone uses Facebook. By looking at this page you can see whats happening without having to join Facebook. You won’t be able to post replies however so will need to contact people another way to let them know if your interested in any plans.

Both Trasher and Facebook pages are password protected, you need to be member to receive the password.

Thanks to Guy and his geek powers for arranging this.

If you do use Facebook but are not a member of the group you can join it here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/kingfishercc/
