COVID-19 Update – 21/03/2020

On the back of the announcement by the government yesterday (20/3/2020) we have made the decision to close the doors for activities on the water at Pinkston until further notice. Over the coming week we will be contacting anyone with bookings likely to be affected. Future bookings will remain as they were – we will monitor the situation as it develops. The facility for making further bookings on skedda has been temporarily suspended, similarly with our online booking system for activities. Please get in touch with us directly if you would like to put something in for further down the line.

Access will remain open to the site for those with storage containers – a new gate code has been sent to relevant people. We will be dropping in regularly to ensure that all is well with the site and will be monitoring emails and phonecalls remotely. Please call the centre number of 0141 332 5636 if you need to speak to a member of staff. There isn’t a message option on this, but it is on a divert to a mobile telephone so will be answered whenever possible.

This is going to be a challenging time for us, as for everyone, but we are looking forward to seeing you all sooner rather than later when the world returns to some semblance of normality.

Look after each other, stay healthy, and enjoy those little moments of peace to be found in this very confusing world

Our Start Kayaking sessions are all about getting you on the water and experiencing the joys of kayaking in a safe and fun way. These adult sessions are for anyone over the age of 16 who want to get on the water and learn the basics of kayaking with basic skills and challenges. We use our great sit on top kayaks meaning that we have the best platform for learning skills without the challenges or fears of ‘getting stuck’.

This session includes your British Canoeing Paddle Start Certificate.
