Langley School children welcome addition to kayaking team

Children at a school near Loddon are celebrating a major addition to one of their sporting teams – a new kayak.

Members of Langley School's kayaking team had their first glimpse of their new team member last week as their K2 racing boat was officially unveiled.

The official unveiling was by one of the team's youngest members Florence Duffield, whose parents were among those who donated towards the cost of the boat.

Headmaster Dominic Findlay said: 'Having our own K2 kayak is a huge credit to teachers and parents who have got involved.

'Special thanks to the parents who have offered their support and made this possible.'

Further support was also provided by the School's Development Fund and a second kayak is already on order.

The club was set up two and a half years ago in conjunction with Norwich Canoe Club.
