'If we don't change, we don't grow. If we don't grow then we aren't really living.'

And on that positive note it's all-change here at want to canoe? HQ as the Fry/Garratt family hand over the business to new owners, The Crouches from @whitneytollbridge

Aubrey, Clare and the whole family have had a blast running and growing this epic little business for the last eight years but now need more time to focus firmly on the farm, new projects and family-time.

want to canoe? is in new hands but it was important to Aubrey, Clare and family that the new hands should be energetic, efficient and responsible... and that's exactly what they have found in Team-Crouch.

Here's a big high five to the future alongside a nostalgic and somewhat teary-eyed nod to our want to canoe? family aka The Dream Team... along with all of you who have paddled with us and supported us over the past eight years πŸ’š
