Guildford Outdoors Group: Breakfast Paddle


Sixteen people turned out for the first Guildford Outdoors activity. We canoed from Fishmarket Reserve to Ascot Kayak Club, where we all enjoyed a delicious breakfast from the Garvey Park Kiosk. Then we paddled home, with some wind against us, just to make sure we had a good workout!

It was great to see some new faces as well as the old, and it’s always good to enjoy  the river early in the morning. It was too bad we were once again reminded of the impact of fishing line when we came across a duck with line and hook caught around its beak. Sadly, we were unable to catch the duck to help it.

Over breakfast we were rewarded with a sighting of one of the many river dolphins, making its way further upstream



The next Guildford Outdoors activity is actually an indoor event – Yoga with Adrian! This is on the 30th of March from 6.30pm – 8pm in the Mechanics Hall. Places are limited, so please register online via eventbrite.


After this class, our next event will be a leisurely bike ride around the river on the 10th of April. This is a lycra free bike ride. All fitness levels and ages welcome. Again, we’ll be stopping at Garvey park kiosk for some breakfast. We will meet at the Guildford Primary school at 8am. Look out for more details on our events in the Transition Town Guildford e-newsletter.
