Delaware Centre Instructors help Cormac Solutions Ranger to clear up Seaton valley pond of the invasive Parrot Feather
A team of Delaware Instructors took their canoes to a pond at Seaton valley park to help clear it of the invasive Parrot Feather aquatic plant. This non-native plant had already spread across a considerable amount of the ponds' surface in only a few short years, and was endagering the habitat of many other native species.
The National Water Safety Management Programme is a suite of interlinked training awards, specifically designed to assist those organisations with employees who work in, or near water to meet their civil and statutory safety management obligations.
The awards in this programme bridge the gap between no qualification and full lifeguard. It is not an award that will replace the lifeguard award but is an excellent way in which competency in and around water may be demonstrated.
We think we've found the perfect day out. Get into a wetsuit, put on a buoyancy aid and don a big helmet. What next... well let's try and walk up that river; waterfalls and all. The Delaware Centre and Cornwall Accessible Activities Programme (CAAP) worked together to give it a go with some willing students this August, deep in the heart of Dartmoor where the rivers run rapid, Gorge-walking is where all the fun is.
Try sailing, canoeing and kayaking at the new Mid Cornwall Water Sports Centre, Trewoon, St Austell.

Traverse walls are great fun and develop a wide range of physical and mental skills and abilities in young people. Climbing holds can be attached to existing walls or can be on freestanding structures. They are low maintenance and weatherproof. In consultation with school staff and students, we will design and install your wall then train your staff to deliver this exciting and challenging activity.
