Beginners course

Have your say

BUXTON-BASED sports club Peak Paddlers is running a five-week course at Buxton Swimming Pool aimed at beginners.

The club, which encompasses all aspects of paddle sports, is based at Errwood Reservoir in the Goyt Valley, where it paddles during the summer.

The course, run by qualified coaches, begins on Saturday January 21, at 3.15pm.

Completion of the course will give the paddler a Canoe England Paddle Power certificate and would provide a good skill base to take out onto Errwood.

Places on the course are limited and can be booked by emailing
