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
  • Tiso
  • 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!
