Press Release – Sport England / National Lottery Grant

In these difficult times Kingfisher Canoe Club is glad to be able to share some very welcome good news.

As you may be aware, planning permission was granted for our new club store/changing facility at Abingdon Lock last year. Over the last few months we have signed a lease for a new site with the Environment Agency and, just recently, have received the excellent news that we have been awarded a National Lottery / Sport England grant of £36,000!

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, KCC has been unable to secure a new base to operate from.

Whilst efforts are continuing to to find a new home it would be extremely helpful if club members and supporters could let their MP or VotWH District Councillor (or the Leader of  the Vale District Council if you live in a different district) how much they value the club.

You can use this link to contact your MP and Councillors:

The leader of the Vale District Council, Mathew Barber, can be contacted by Email.

We’ve had many words of support recently and would like to thank everyone for these.

Thank you
