“I was buzzing after my visit and what a friendly and vibrant club” – the words of BBC sports correspondent Mike Bushell after filming the club for BBC Breakfast.

Mike himself went out in an Edon with floats; and under expert guidance, quickly progressed to a recreational quad; all under the eye of cameraman Pete.
