Grand Inga project

We don't normally post stuff like this on the blog. Its usually about us our more local stuff.

Love him or hate him, Steve Fisher is an absolute legend in modern kayaking, an innovator in freestyle and boundry pusher in white water paddling.

His new project is about the Grand Inga rapids on the Congo. Belived to be the worlds largest rapids. The trailer is out now.

River Exe clean up

The Exe Estuary management team are doing another river clean up.

Get involved!



 Hello there!
Hope you are well and feeling energetic, perhaps anticipating being at a loose end once the school holidays finish?  If so, I have just the thing (see attached poster) - a chance for fun, fresh air and feel good factor.  And as a thank you for giving up your time to come along and spruce up the beautiful estuary, the autumnal clean up event will be followed at 3pm by a relaxing cruise and buffet lunch aboard the Tudor Rose - free thanks to the kind generosity of Stuart Line Cruises and the Environment Agency. 
We hope that free parking permits from East Devon District Council will be available on the day, but are awaiting confirmation. 
You don’t need to book onto the clean up event, just turn up - the more the merrier!  I shall be out of the office after Wednesday 29th Aug until 13th September, but if you have any queries about the event, please ring or email and I will contact you on my return.
