Watersports and outdoor pursuits including canoeing, kayaking and bell boating are on offer at the Canalside Activity Centre for young people aged 9 to 19 of all abilities. You don't even need any water sports gear, just a full change of clothes (including spare shoes), towel and some shower gel and they'll supply the expertise and equipment. During the holidays, the centre runs fun and exciting holiday projects during Half Term, Easter, and the Summer holidays. Holiday projects generally run from 11am to 4pm daily, Monday to Friday but it's best to contact the Centre to find out exact times and dates for special projects.
