What are we up to?

We meet regularly on Saturday mornings at Bridge 8 Hub and Paddle Cafe at 10:30 am.

Occasionally we have 'Dragon Days Out' to Port Edgar Marina (South Queensferry) or Lochore Meadows Country Park.

We are also planning trips to Auchinstarry Marina on the Forth and Clyde Canal and possibly to Strathclyde Country Park!

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for dates and times.
