New ‘Paddle through’ take away

plans for Boscombe Beach

The Urban Guild group are hoping to create another first for Bournemouth Beach with a ‘paddle through take away’ to increase business to The Wood Oven.

A planning application is currently being prepared by the Urban Guild group to develop a ‘venetian style’ water way from the sea and across the promenade direct to The Wood Oven on Boscombe Beach. The concept idea means that Stand Up Paddleboarders and kayakers won’t even need to put down their paddles in order to enjoy one of The Wood Ovens delicious take away pizzas.

Mark Cribb – founder of Urban Guild said: ‘The idea of the paddle through take away is very similar to a fast food drive through except we do it with water and paddle boards. We already deliver our wood-oven cooked pizzas to homes within four miles but being by the sea on Boscombe beach means that half the area is too wet for our delivery bikes and car. This way we are maximising the number of customers that can enjoy our takeaway, allowing them to paddle right up to our door to place their order.’

The planning application which the Urban Guild group hope to have completed by 1st April, will form part of the rejuvenation of Boscombe Beach which saw the launch of a Mini Golf on the pier last year with golf balls that feed the fish!
