    Hi all I am organising a trip down the top section of the river mersey from stockport to northenden, with the possibility of doing the second section down to the rugby club if you are interested.
    This trip will be on bank holiday monday and we will be meeting up at the put in at ford street at 2 pm.

    Pm me for more details.

    Add yourself to the list if you are interested.

    :D At the speed we paddle you could walk along the river and join us for the brew stops if you want or I am sure we could find space in a canoe if you fancied a go.

    :eek:
    It's worth asking if someone has a spare (i've been borrowing one up until buying one yesterday) - As for swimming.. I'm not a particularly strong swimmer, and I went on a canoe holiday to Sweden.... my second time in a canoe :eek: :eek:
