Fladbury is extremely lucky to have its own canoe and kayak club in the village, founded by Olympic Coach David Train and now run by Olympic medallist Andy Train. Andy is a frequent visitor at school and runs bellboating activities for the school and encourages children to take part in competitions and regattas. Bellboating is more than just paddling up and down the river! The children learn team building skills, develop self confidence, overcome fears, test themselves and also learn about climate change and global warming. The schools have annual competitions in Pershore and the Parish games also attract teams from all the local villages and Fladbury is always keen to take part.
During the summer term Bellboating is very much part of the PE curriculum and also offered as an afterschool activity too
