COVID

Stafford & Stone Canoe Club are taking every precaution to stop the spread of Coronavirus (Covid 19) amongst our members, members family and the wider population of Stone. We are taking this current situation very seriously and are fully complying with current Government, British Canoeing and Sport England advise.

The club has taken the decision to run sessions for our members since restrictions were lifted. We feel the health and mental wellbeing are very important and to be able to give people access to safe exercise is vitally important.

Curent Situation

5th November 2020

Following the announcement we have been forced to stop all club activities and close the access to the clubhouse to use the toilet and the boat stores.

We are pleased that it is still possible to paddle in family groups or two individuals. We would ask anyone visiting Stone to follow this guidance.

In the event you find other paddlers on the river, we have reintroduced the zone system. Road Bridge to middle steps, Middle steps to bend and Bend and below. Please stick to one zone if required.

To improve safety for those local residents who use the river path or river, we will have the lights on a timer. Coming on Mon to Fri 5pm to 9pm.

All of the above is within the guidance of British Canoeing, Sport England and the Government.
