Week 3 Social - Macmillan Quiz Night 🧐

Posted 2d 12h ago by Dan Collier

Good afternoon all,

For the social this week we are hosting a quiz night, which has been created by Macmillan Cancer Support. As a way to support Macmillan we are asking everyone who wishes to attend the evening to donate a minimum of £1.50 using the link below:

Macmillan Cancer Support is a great charity that supports people living with cancer and like many charities has been hit hard by the pandemic with fundraising events being cancelled and charity shops having to close during lockdowns. For more information about the charity visit the link below:

https://www.macmillan.org.uk/ 

The quiz will be on Thursday at 7 pm on discord and there will be 2 quizzes, an original Quiz night quiz and a 2020 quiz, so turn up to test your knowledge, have some fun and support a great charity.

Social love,

Dan, James and all the exec

Dinnertime Destress

Posted 15d ago by Claudia Perry

Dinnertime Destress is BACK

 

It may be a new year, but we’re still here every Monday evening for some dedicated chill time

 

This week's theme is a simple one - catch up cuppa. After the Christmas break I’m looking forward to catching up with you all over a hot (or cold) brew. And with all this extra time on our hands I’m looking for comfort drink inspiration, so bring your best beverages. (This is your advanced warning to stock up on that new hot choc powder you’ve been eyeing up (treat yourself, it’s 2021)). 

 

We’re talking anything from a hot chocolate explosion, to a delicate herbal infusion - whatever takes your fancy and will help you unwind. 

 

Looking forward to seeing you all at 7pm on Monday 11th Jan, at this teams link.

 

Relaxing canolo vibes,

Presidents’ Post and Merry Christmas

Posted 1mth 4d ago by Claudia Perry
 
Hi everyone!
 
We hope you’re all looking forward to Christmas and taking a well-deserved break
 
First off a huge thank you to everyone this term - for your patience, cooperation and positivity during what has been a term like no other.
 
Despite everything, we’ve got plenty to look back on:
 
Both clubs successfully held several covid-secure taster sessions (remember pool sessions!!) and leam training was back in full force. The canoe club ran a brilliant white water trip to the Peak District, and canoe polo had their best-attended ball throwing session in recent memory.
 
In addition to this, we launched weekly Dinnertime Destress, our lovely social secs kept us entertained every Thursday evening, and our strava lockdown challenge got us moving in the fresh air!
 
With next terms’ plans as definite as everything else at the mo (aka up in the air), we will keep you all updated with the clubs’ happenings in the new year.
But rest assured, as soon as restrictions allow, we will be back on the water with a splash.
 
Until then, Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, and try not to miss us too much,
 
Canolo love from your canolo presidents,
 
Owen and Claudia

Posted 2mth 5d ago by James Hickmott

We are excited to announce that we are running secret Santa this year!!!!!

Due to the uncertainty surrounding restrictions after lockdown, we can not book Christmas meal currently.

However, we will still be doing a secret Santa. If you would like to take part, please sign up using the link at the bottom of this post. You have until Tuesday 24th November. After that day you will not be able to sign up and take part.

On Tuesday 24th everyone that signed up will get an email telling them, who their secret Santa is for.

We are asking everyone to have their gift ready by the end of lockdown, 3rd December. On the 3rd James and I will come and pick up everyone's gifts and then deliver them. Just make sure you put their name on it!

If you are looking for an excuse to go for a walk during lockdown and have your gift ready, then feel free to come and drop your gift of at our house.

Any questions feel free to message one of us,

Social love,

Dan, James and all the exec.
