Meeting with Canal and River Trust and British Canoeing

Andrew met with representatives of the Canal and River Trust and British Canoeing on Friday to discuss the Transpennine Coast to Coast Canoe Trail from Liverpool to Goole.

Andrew reports, "On Friday last week, I met with the Canal and River Trust and British Canoeing to discuss progress on the Transpennine Coast to Coast Canoe Trail from Liverpool to Goole. Or rather, from Goole to Liverpool. Oddly they started the end portions first meaning that the starting section from Goole is going to be completed last!

"A Hub will be created at the Waterways in Goole, which will become a meeting point for groups to take part in canoe sessions, or leadership programmes like the Duke of Edinburgh. There will also be improved access to the water along with signage to raise awareness and increase users on to our waterways.

"Taster sessions for canoeing will also begin in the next couple of months."
