Shropshire All Aboard!
Shropshire All Aboard is a county wide initiative to encourage members to take to the water. Saturday 4th September is ‘Water Day’ a county event with book-and-go water activities for all sections, running in several different locations.
Whether you would like to have a go at helming a narrow boat on the Shropshire Union Canal, sailing a dinghy, or splashing about in smaller boats on the Severn there is a choice to suit all ages and abilities.
Canal boating and Sailing will be available near Ellesmere, whilst Canoeing, Kayaking and Paddle-boarding are on offer in Shrewsbury.
Places will be sold on a first-come-first served basis, and prices and sessions times vary. All participants will get an event badge. Please see the attached booking form and FAQ sheet for more information.
As spaces are limited, please call or email Miriam Butler (water advisor) on 07966 947216 to reserve places before returning the booking form with payment.
Please note: currently we are only able to offer 10 spaces per session for sailing. If Covid regulations are relaxed in June this will increase to 20. I will operate a ‘waiting list’ system for these additional places.
The canal between Lyneal and Ellesmere is part of the Shropshire Way – why not do Shropshire All Aboard! alongside the Shropshire Way Challenge and make a day of it?
