Weekly kayaking sessions take place at Heol Ddu Leisure Centre on a Monday 7pm (adults and children), Sunday evenings at Newbridge 7pm for young persons and 7.45pm for adults. Sessions cost £3 for juniors and £3.50 for adults. Participants should be aged 8 and over and subject to an assessment in the water prior to joining. We ask that participants wear a tee-shirt over swimwear for the sessions. All equipment is provided.
The Caerphilly Adventure Group meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 7pm at The Gateway Centre, Tredomen Business Park, CF82 7EH.
The monthly meeting provides a chance to catch up and plan future events. New members are welcome to attend, as it is a good opportunity to meet others and find out what's going on. Guest speakers and members deliver short presentations on activities or trips they have undertaken.
