Where do my Membership Fees Go?
The majority of the membership fee that you pay goes to Canoe Wales in order to pay for the club’s affiliation which gives all members tremendous benefits; check out the Canoe Wales website for details.
We also pay to be affiliated with the Outdoor Partnership.
Another portion goes towards insurance, for example, the pool boats and white water boats are insured against theft, so if you are unlucky enough to have one of the club boats stolen whilst it is in your care, all is not lost!
Money also has to be paid ‘up-front’ to the swimming pool (we have to pay in blocks of 10 weeks), the cost of which is not always fully recouped from pool session fees.
We have a large number of good quality boats and paddling kit which requires maintenance and sometimes replacing.
No remuneration goes to any coach or member of the committee. These people volunteer their services freely to the club.
