might be worth asking folks if there's any local canoeing/kayaking facebook groups near you. If you can get on any of these there'll be folks who can give you lifts and paddle with. We've got a few up north and theres allways someone willing to help folks out

I paddle at Paddle Plus in Leicester every Thrusday.
Paddling in a chilled out friendly environment.
Best thing to do is just come down and we can show you around - best to get there around 7ish to get on the water around 7.30.
What area of Leicester are you from?
Let me know if you want any more info, or send me a PM.
