Thursday Thames Session

Kew Bridge Thames Session Thursday 14 Oct 2021

Please arrive at The Arches closest to the river, on the North East side of Kew Bridge.

Also this ensures that all have boats and kit ready so we can be on the water at the scheduled start time.

If you are running late or for other changes please text/email the session leader at least an hour before, in case trip has to be cancelled if we go under min group size, if possible.
