Have your say

FIREFIGHTERS have rescheduled a charity kayak event around Hayling Island.

They were forced to cancel the charity paddle because of bad weather in June.

But the team of up to 50 fire personnel, as well as RNLI volunteers, will now kayak 14 miles around the island on Sunday, September 16.

They will start their journey at Sandy Point, paddling north, then under Hayling bridge, down into the open sea, before returning to Eastoke.

Proceeds from sponsorship will go to Hayling RNLI and The Fire Fighters Charity.
