Canoe Slalom on Blue Peter

Stafford and Stone Canoe Club hosted the stars of Blue Peter in a Canoe Slalom special shown last night on CBBC.

Earlier this year the club contacted the children’s TV classic to see if they wanted to give the sport a go – and they jumped at the chance.

Presenters Richie Driss and Lindsey Russell visited the club over the summer to speak to Olympic gold medallist and Stafford and Stone paddler Joe Clarke and 2012 Olympian Lizzie Neave to find out a little bit more about the sport.

They were then put through their places by two of the club’s paddlers Alana and Harry, who coached them through the basics as they prepared for a winner takes all, head to head battle.

Huge congratulations and well done to everyone involved in making this happen.
