WoW – Women on Water

wow

Why should the chaps and kids have all the fun?

Make time on Thursday evenings to come and join a bunch of like minded ladies having fun on the water in our beautiful location.

No need for experience, just a willingness to muck in and get a bit wet whilst keeping that grin on your face.

Oh, and a nice meal to top off the evening. What’s not to like?
