Coaches and other volunteers from BS Canoe Club again staged the annual "Come and Try Canoeing" event on the River Stort from the towpath between Station Road Bridge and the Causeway/Hockerill Bridge.
The total raised this year was over £570 - all of which goes directly to Grove Cottage (home of Bishops Stortford Mencap). This brings the sum raised over the five years that the event has been running to a grand total of £3600!
Members of the public took to the water in the club's stable one-person kayaks and in large open canoes operated by coaches and assistants. Many of the families coming along commented that they they had been to the event before in past years and were delighted to find it being repeated.
