  • Help


    I am seeking to create a team of 3/4 to help prepare and assist in canoeing tours and prepare and care for guests during their stay.

    Particularly I am interested in international or european driving license holders
    Help includes meeting canoeists at our meeting point and driving them to the river and back again at the end of their journeys.

    The majority of our canoeists are english speakers so helpers must be confident to give instructions in english
