Wyre Forest Canoe Club (WFCC)
The Wyre Forest Canoe Club is a long established and dynamic canoe & kayaking club with facilities including changing rooms adjacent to the river Severn in Bewdley, Worcestershire.
The primary aim of the WFCC is to promote recreational canoeing and kayaking while providing maximum enjoyment in a safety aware environment.
The WFCC aims to provide introductory sessions for those wishing to try the sport for the first time. Sessions are held on the river Severn on Friday evenings throughout the Summer months and occasionally at the Wyre Forest Glades pool at other times. We also engage professional coaches from time to time to provide for specialised training such as First Aid and Safety & Rescue and personal skills.
The WFCC maintains an extensive range of equipment for members use. This includes safety gear, paddles, canoes and kayaks of various types and sizes including small kayaks suitable for youngsters. We cater for all ages and abilities.
In addition to the Friday evening sessions we organise outings to a variety of UK rivers and coastal locations (see events page). These can range from flat water up to grade 4 rivers and surf. We also enjoy an amazing social scene with "alternative" events such as Beer & Skittles, Karting and bike rides in the nearby Wyre forest.
The WFCC has charity status (no 1111262). This is advantageous to the club as it helps us with grant applications to certain organisations. Members are asked to print off and complete the Gift Aid Form and send it back to the club or hand it in at a club session. (Press 'cancel' at the password window)
