Members Newsletter - Winter 2015
Welcome to our Winter 2015 Members newsletter presented its new format through our website blog. I hope you're finding the topics covered in our blog useful and if not, all feedback is welcome so let us know what topics you'd like to be covered. We continue to develop your new website and a 'Feedback Form' will be added to the website in 2016 which will allow for quick and easy feedback from customers and members alike.
Your new website continues to develop with work on providing real-time weather information for trips, courses and events as well as work to categorise the blog topics to make them easier to find and use. As already mentioned the feedback form will also be added and Members can already review each individual trip, course or event. Although this winter has been warm so far, it's also been very windy which has put off many from booking so please accept our apology for the lack of attendance at some of our events - we can only work with the bookings we have. But we expect an increase in online bookings beginning in March 2016 and dates for 2016 have already been added for around half of the events and more will be added shortly so feel free to start making your bookings for 2016. We are also confident that we'll be able to update our smartphone Application 'iKayaker' in line with the new website for 2016.
Our fleet of kayaks grows slowly with the addition of three Ocean Kayak sit-on-top kayaks including two very popular Trident kayaks. These are large, stable and comfortable boats with good carrying capacity and we'll also be adding canoes to the fleet in 2016.
Xmas Gift Vouchers
Xmas gift vouchers are available to purchase online; available in denominations of £10 you can order gift vouchers from as little as £20 all the way up to £150 and all gift vouchers can be redeemed against any event, course or retail product AND can act as part payment too. All Gift Vouchers are valid for one year from the date of payment - this is a great stocking filler and an easy order if you are at a loss of what to buy for friends or family.
We are now recruiting Guides and coaches for paid work! All Guides are contracted as a freelance and paid direct to their bank account per event with the rate of pay determined by qualifications and experience. We are also developing an apprentice programme where new entrants will be trained by NOMAD with internationally recognised qualifications and of course these qualifications will result in greater earnings. The new website will take all applications from the ‘About Us’ page which has been set up so please apply by the end of January 2016 to be included in the next induction training course.
As always we are available throughout the week and weekend on 01473 - 375 026 if there is anything we can help you with.
See you all soon,
