Hot Doggers . . .

The water activity team are pleased to be able to offer fun sessions on the River Soar at the LOPC again this year.

Bookings for these sessions are now being taken for the 2014
Sessions are being offered in blocks of 5 so you can book for 5, 10, 15 or 20 on a session we believe this will suit most groups’ requirements but if you have a requirement not catered for please e-mail and ask – we can normally accommodate.

Cost

Each block of 5 will cost £25 and any agreed additions to this are charged @ £5 each.

Bookings process

Please e-mail your booking requirements to

Andy Parker: andy_parkers@yahoo.com

We will then confirm availability of you chosen date / dates

You will then be e-mailed confirmation with an invoice for your session which we ask you pay before your session. This will save us sorting out payments on the night and enables us to get on with having fun on the water.

Following payment you will be sent a receipt.

Venue

All sessions take place at the LOPC. Loughborough Road Leicester, LE4 5PN

If you have not been along before why not come and have a go. The team will ensure you have fun and want to come back.
