This is a world-class Olympic site, based in Waltham Cross, used to host the Team GB canoe slalom team and talent ID programme, with local young people being selected to train.
It hosted a paddlesports programme for harder-to-reach groups to teach the basics of paddling and rescue skills. The programme was run by Broxbourne Ethnic Minority Association, Lee Valley Regional Park Authority and local partners to tackle social exclusion by engaging with young people from minority groups.
The Green Aiders project helps elderly, disabled, or vulnerable adults take control of their overgrown gardens through a one-off gardening service. It is run by Groundwork Hertfordshire, the community charity with a green heart, and supported by volunteers who help with the gardening.
