Making a splash

MORE than 100 children, young people and relatives took to the water at Taylor Park to help celebrate 75 years of the British Canoe Union.

The Go Canoe event was organised by St Helens Youth Service with the help of canoe and kayak manufacturer Pyranha.

So well received was the event that Youth Service organisers are now planning a ‘Fun for All’ weekend on 6 and 7 August – featuring both canoeing and high rope activities.
