A Somerset-based watersports club is putting on a whole host of new activities in the lead up to summer.

Cheddar Watersports, on the reservoir, welcomes stand up paddle-boarding (SUP), sailing, SUP yoga, and windsurfing experiences to encourage more people to enjoy time on the water.

Over recent years the club went through a period of declining membership and two years ago faced the threat of closure.

Now the club is facing a bright future with a host of new and exciting activities which is encouraging people of all ages to get out on the water, which are all run by volunteers.

Club secretary Alice Driscoll said: “Being able to get out on the water, enjoy time together with family and friends, learn new skills and have amazing experiences is something many people aspire to.”

There will also be canoeing, kayaking and taster experiences on offer.
