Our water based activity centre in Hotwells has had a fresh lick of paint! Pooles Wharf which is located next to the Mardyke Landing is a bustling centre from which we run our popular Kayak Club and Canoeing sessions every week. We thought it was time to update the artwork painted on the side of the building so we worked with Graffiti Artist Nick Halahan A.K.A Olas Arts to design a beautiful mural.
Why not come and see the artwork for yourself and have a go at some action on the water! Currently we have the following activities taking place this Spring/Summer:
Our popular kayak club has now started! It is suitable for young people aged between 8 and 21 years old. Sessions take place at our Pooles Wharf Activity Centre in Bristol’s Floating Harbour on Tuesday evenings between 5pm – 7pm.
Cost £7 per person per session
Drop ins and beginners are very welcome.
FREE Gig Rowing sessions for 50yrs+
Wednesday mornings from 10:00 am to 12:00pm we have drop-in Gig Rowing sessions for those aged 50+. Thanks to Bristol Ageing Better for enabling us to offer these fully funded sessions.

Sportivate Funded Kayak Activities
The Activities team have been fortunate to secure funding from Sportivate to run a 6 week Kayak programme with young people from our Avon and Hartcliffe Clubs. They have been out on the water once a week developing new skills in Kayaking and team building.
We are applying for funding for May/June and September/October for more water based activities. The funding includes 6 sessions which are each 2 hours long. This opportunity is ideal for young people involved in youth clubs. If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity please email Lisa at Young Bristol email@example.com. We can then inform you if we are successful in securing this funding. Wish us luck!
