Incorporation – to be voted on at the AGM

Hi.  Thanks to lots and lots of hard work by Sue Hawthorne and Simon Davies we are now able to vote on whether to incorporate the club – for it to become a limited company.

Please see the rationale for doing so, the Articles of Association and the Bye Laws.  These can still be amended and will be reviewed by a lawyer. Please note I am not intending to print  copies of these out for everyone for the AGM.

Regard,

Julian

Alistair Collier

Alistair Collier

We are shocked and saddened to hear that Alistair Collier is missing at sea.  He was taking part in a GB Outrigger Canoe Association race off the Dorset coast yesterday, and is still missing.  According to media reports, the search has resumed today, led by the Coastguard and involving RNLI lifeboats and the police.  Alistair is a valued member of the club and a keen paddler.

I don’t have any further information on the circumstances.  We can but hope he returns safely.  Our thoughts are with him, his family and friends.

Well done to all Worcester paddlers who have taken part in the Waterside series and good luck to all doing the latter Waterside races and Devizes to Westminster this year.
