The detective series 'Foyle's War' broadcast last Sunday evening (4th Jan) included some scenes shot at Collingwood Dock and the surroundings (remember the ship set on the dockside by the polo pitches). The large tobacco warehouse that is beside Stanley Dock featured in the background on a number of occasions and the Victoria tower (the clock tower) the far side of Salisbury Dock also was in a scene. Unsurprisingly nothing at all of any canoeing activities were visible. If they had been it would have been the era of canvas and wood canoes.
The website is a bit thin on articles at the moment. Perhaps we are all to busy paddling. If you have some time spare please write an article for club members and the public to enjoy. Photos can be included. Send to me in the first instance or to the yahoogroup. Ta muchly.
The Club would like to Congratulate Mike Moffit on his recent (last Saturday) National award presented by
British Canoe Union for his 'Outstanding Contribution to Paddlesport' link to photo
This was announced at the BCU 75th Anniversary Dinner in Nottingham. Only a few awards were presented for outstanding support in the sport. As many of you know Mike has a long history with paddling from Scouting Stuart's participation in the sport, Mike becoming Coach, then Polo coach to GB Canoe Polo Sqaud coach. He is still one of the most active Coaches in the Club and Nationally. A WELL DESERVED AWARD
Congratulations Mike from Friends of Allonby Liverpool Canoe Club
