Last outdoor session of the summer, 4 September, Ennerdale.
Pool sessions restart 11 September, 20.00 at Copeland Pool
Copeland Canoe club members continue to benefit from the two hour coach led pool session at Whitehaven pool. From Sept 17 we have seen a decline in the number of members using the pool sessions mainly within the second and third sessions. For many years the club has absorbed the yearly pool hire charge increase without increasing the weekly member charge, which has remained at £4. Over the last couple of years the club has made a financial loss with the pool charges which we have managed to off-set through outdoor sessions.
The cost of the two hour pool session has now increased to £150, therefore the committee has now had to take the decision to increase the weekly pool charge by an additional £1. From the 11th Sept 2018 the weekly cost per person will increase by £1 to:
Members: £5.00; families maximum £10.00 no matter how many attend
Non members: £6.00; families maximum £12.00 no matter how many attend.
We hope that members will understand why we have made this decision. If you have any issues with this, please contact Mark Jones our chairman intially via our website (contact us page, link above).
