Frequently asked questions
Can I bring my own alcohol into the Paddle Village Site?
No, only alcohol purchased within the Paddle Village may be consumed on site.
Working with our Bar suppliers we will endeavour to ensure reasonable prices are offered for all drinks. (Please see “Bars” for a full price list nearer the time)
Are dogs allowed in the Paddle Village?
Provided dogs are under control (and on a lead) then dogs are welcome – but please remember that some areas can be noisy/crowded at busy times so your “hound” may not be happy in this environment.
What If I lose my child?
There is a designating meeting point. We offer wrist bands on all gates for you to add your mobile telephone number to – which we will call if your child is found to be alone. Please make staff aware as soon as you realise you have lost your child. “Found” children will always be taken to the meeting point by our Child safety officer(s) and will not be released to anyone who cannot prove their identity – please use the wrist bands provided.
Where do I get a sponsorship form?
Please download a form from our website home page (on the right). Paper versions will be available in local surf/water sport shops near to the event.
Can I raise money for another charity of my choosing?
No, we only raise money for the three nominated charities. You may ask for your charity to be considered for representation the following year.
