Club Mark
HHCC is working towards Club Mark accreditation, which brings a number of benefits to the club. Primarily it gives us more funding opportunities, will be required if we're to use the Olympic course at Broxbourne and helps us meet ever increasing legislation.

We believe that taking part in a club is long-established and proven means of developing teamwork, social skills and mutual responsibility in young people and adults alike. Paddlesport offers excitement and physical exertion in a controlled environment.  It trains individuals to manage risk and gives a sense responsibility, personal achievement, resourcefulness and teamwork.

To qualify for the Club Mark, we need to reinforce these beliefs with written evidence, including a code of conduct, club rules, risk assessment, child protection policy and health & safety policy. We have all these in place, but they have not all been formally issued. 

Code of Conduct
The code of conduct and club rules, as here, and have now been agreed by the club committee and are in force. This document formalises our informal practices and must be adhered to by all please!

Any queries members have over the code, club rules and associated policies can be raised at the AGM.
