CANOE lessons are being offered by Kirklees Council.
They are trying to encourage adults and children to make use of the wealth of waterways around Dewsbury with free canoeing sessions being offered as part of the ‘Outdoor Dewsbury Festival’.
The ‘Introduction to Canoeing’ sessions are being run byŠ the Pennine Canoe Club and will make use of the facilities at Savile Town Wharf, Mill Street East, Dewsbury.
In the 90 minute sessions, participants will be able to learn the basics of canoeing in a safe and controlled environment. They will use open canoes, which seat two people.
There are sessions planned for August 3 and 4.
There is also the opportunity to do a longer river trip, in open canoes, from Mirfield to the Sands Lane Recreation Ground, on Friday, August Š6.
