Canoe Believe It’s Paddleboarding Night!

| 20th August 2020

It’s that time of year where Aylsham Round Table like to get wet and display their watersports prowess. Tablers and their families decided to have a summer evening at Mike Thurston Water Activities Centre, North Walsham.

Every so often Aylsham Round Table like to get their families out and do something active so on a pleasant summer’s evening everyone headed to Mike Thurston Water Activities Centre for a spot of paddleboarding. The session was expertly run by Tony Dennis and Stephen Cook who kept everyone in check and followed the social distancing guidelines to the letter to ensure everyone’s safety. Everyone who attended had a great time and there’s nothing better than seeing the tabler kids capsizing the tablers. They weren’t precious about who they went after!

For those who don’t know, the Trust and the Water Activities Centre was born of the sad event – the death of a young Scout leader in the town; Mike Thurston. One of Mike’s passions was sailing, and a small group of like-minded people formed the idea of creating a water activities centre in Mike’s memory. The centre has provided a safe learning environment for young people to enjoy a range of watersports since 1982.

Table were therefore delighted to make a donation to The Mike Thurston Trust for equipment to assist in continuing to provide a facility for watersports and camping activity. A couple of our members remember attending events at the centre when they were cub scouts!!

Mike Thurston is located on the edge of North Walsham alongside the disused Dilham Canal. It can be booked for watersports and camping just visit their website at for enquiries:
