Tonbridge Canoe Club members paddle from Tonbridge to Wateringbury.

Members of a canoe club have paddled their way to raising £122 for British Wireless for the Blind Fund.

Tonbridge Canoe Club touring section members made their way from Tonbridge to Wateringbury on Saturday 4th August.

On a warm but cloudy afternoon with the threat of rain hanging over the trip, Jane, Jo, Fiona, Rosemary, Jeremy, Lenny , Pete, Richard, John, John and Helen paddled downstream through the rural scenery of the middle section of the River Medway.

Stopping for lunch on their 15km journey, they paddled under bridges, down canoe passes, round locks, following the flow and bends of the river to Wateringbury Marina.

After gently persuading the swans to move to make room to disembark, canoes were loaded onto car roofs and everyone moved across the road to club members Ben and Frances’ house for supper.
