4 weeks to go until the Something To Look Forward To 70 mile charity SUP challenge.
As we countdown, each Wednesday we want to share with you something about the challenge!
Today is our supporters!
We are in a lucky position to be supported with equipment from Escape Watersports. This amazing company have supplied nearly all of our kit over the past year, and are incredibly knowledgeable regarding anything paddlesports.
Keeping us warm before and after the paddle, dryrobe have gifted us a pair of their fanastic robes, which came in useful for our training marathon when the wind had picked up.
Lastly for today, Ye Old Ferrie Inn have organised a live band for the evening of the 2nd June to help us celebrate the end of an epic challenge. If you would like to join us, the band is due to start at 18.00 and is open to all.

Are you looking for a casual job/extra income that is more fun than most usual work?

As part of Ye Old Ferrie Inn on the River Wye, we are looking to hire casual staff to work over the coming season, particularly during the busy periods over weekends and school holidays.
We operate canoe hire and trips, paddleboarding sessions and the hand pull ferrie across the river.

As a family friendly business, we understand that you may well be looking for work that fits around the different commitments you already have. We offer flexible working hours to suit you, for as much or as little as you would like.

With most of our paddleboarding customers being women, and as supporters of British Canoeing&rs#ShePaddlesaddles campaign, we would love to hear from any female coaches or instructors to complement our team and help support women on the water.

Were you looking for a holiday job in school, college or university breaks?

Not all roles require qualifications as we will give you full training, but if you find you really love working on the water supporting paddlers, we can support you with becoming a qualified instructor or coach and help enhance your future career prospects.
The minimum age is 16 for our ferrieperson role, which makes it an ideal role to enjoy the sunshine whilst earning money.

Contact us at for further information or email your CV to apply.
