Our Committee

The Cuckmere Valley Canoe Club is run by volunteers donating their time to help others and provide enjoyment for all members. Without such volunteers to club wouldn’t exist.

The club welcomes any new volunteers or help. Whether it be coaching, organising events or just parents helping to pack away at the end of a session. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please Contact Us

A big thanks goes out to all those who already help and make the club as great as it is!
