Young People’s Holiday Scheme – Kings Norton




AGES 8-18


Only young people living in B14, B38, B31 & B30 are eligible.


Thanks to funding received from Children in Need we are offering FREE watersports on the canal in Kings Norton for young people between the ages of 8 & 18!

On offer will be kayaking. No experience is necessary as our qualified and experienced instructors will give you all the information you need to get going.

We will be based on the canal in Kings Norton basin; right inbetween Lifford Lane and Kings Norton Playing fields. There aren’t any toilet or changing facilities here so we will not be offering a full day of activities – but it will still be 2 x 2 hour sessions per day.

Sessions will run 10:30-12:30 and 2:00-4:00 every Monday and Tuesday during the school holidays. Book one or book lots its up to you but please only book if you plan to attend!!
