Pinkston Paddlesports Party
Saturday 1st June marked Pinkston’s 5th birthday – and what a way to celebrate!
We opened our doors to the public for a day of paddling and prizes – throughout the day we had a whopping 155 people sign up to take part in 263 sessions across rafting, kayaking, canoeing and SUP yoga.
“Thanks for such a brilliant day! First time here but will 100% be back. Absolutely loved it!” – Mark on Facebook
“Thanks to everyone involved, was a fab afternoon. Kids and I thoroughly enjoyed trying new things. Will definitely be getting booked into a few things soon!” – Louise on Facebook
The day wouldn’t have been possible without all of our fantastic, committed volunteers – so this #volunteersweek we wanted to say a huge thank you! The collaboration with our incredible partners was key to the success of the day, so another massive thanks to these guys:
- Summit to Sea
- Border Kayaks
- North East Kayaks
- Outdoor Pursuits Scotland
- Monklands Canoe Club
- The Scottish Canoe Association
- Pinkston Panthers
- Clyde Scouts
- Our friendly local Burger Van
The collaboration and community effort was a true personification of what Pinkston is all about and we look forward to many more years of paddling and parties to come!
