Platty+ – Watersports on Derwentwater

On 27 July 2019 we will be heading off to Derwentwater, along with friends from other Headway branches, for water sports at Platty+.

Platty+ is a small friendly family run water sports centre based on the shores of Derwentwater experienced in dealing with individuals and groups, children and adults (including those with special needs), families with young children, corporate groups and school parties.  They are offering a two hour programme that will run from 10 am to 12 noon with attendees being given the opportunity to go on the water in a canoe, kayak, or dragon boat.

The morning’s exertions will be followed by a bring your own picnic lunch.
