South Pennine Boat Club

What's On


Starts: 10am

WORK PARTIES HAVE NOW RESUMED. Covid measures are still in place in the clubhouse and members are asked to comply with requests in this regard to keep everyone safe.

A work party usually takes place on the first full weekend of the month. Occasionally these are moved e.g for New Year, Easter, the Rally. Dates are published in the Handspike magazine.

Please come along and lend a hand as we can only keep fees low by everyone participating and helping out with chores. A jobs list is sent by email to all SPBC recipients a few days before the event.

Work usually starts about 10am. Tea and coffee is provided FOC and on Saturday, a lunch is often provided at a nominal charge.

There is nearly always a social get-together on the Saturday evening of the work party. This may be an organised event or a Free'n'Easy night where folk just gather for a drink and a natter.

We hope you can join us at the next work party weekend.

2022 Easter Cruise deferred.

Sunday 17 April 2022

Unfortunately, due to other events, we are not now planning an Easter Cruise this year. 

Instead, we will be holding an Open Day over the Easter weekend. The Club Cruise will be in May, when our Cruise Master, Dennis, will be organising another Ouse Cruise to York and Ripon - CRT stoppages permitting!!

If there is enough interest, a further cruise may be organised for later in the summer.


Monday 18 April 2022
Starts: 11-4

We are planning a very low-key boat-oriented Open Day to take place on Easter Monday. Local boaters and the Mirfield community will be invited to join us at SPBC to learn about what we do. To keep work to a minumum, it is proposed that there will be no bar and no kids activities - just boaty things.

Ideas include:

  • Dry-dock demo
  • An Open 'show' Boat to view
  • Trips on CNS boat Savile/Lady Victoria (TBC)
  • Some invited stall holders
  • Tea and coffee sales - no waitresses!
  • A Treasure Hunt DIY tour


If you have other ideas or would like to help with some of these activities or planning for the day, please come along to a meeting on SUNDAY 9th JANUARY at 11am. There is also a list on the noticeboard in the clubhouse for volunteers - no previous experience needed - just a willingness to be involved and lend a hand.
