New Meeting Location

We’re currently on the search for a new home, see here – Link. However we have been able to find some space to park near Abingdon Lock and we are looking at temporary storage solutions for our kit.

We have managed to secure some parking space near the lock from which we can operate from. See here for more details: Link

Petition for a New Home

Kingfisher Canoe Club will be at the Market Square in Abingdon today (9th Dec) raising support for its attempts to acquire a new base to operate from. The Oxford Mail has more on this here: Oxford Mail

You can find the online petition here: Online Petition

If you live or work in Vale of White Horse, please sign our petition asking the council to allow Kingfisher Canoe Club to move onto Rye Meadow.

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
