|20 March 2020 - Coronavirus|
During these unprecedented times, please follow all
official advice regarding Covid-19 (Coronavirus), this is:
Everyone should do what they can to stop coronavirus spreading, It is particularly important for people who:
Stay at home if you have either:
You'll need to stay at home if you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) or live with someone who does.
Staying at home means you should:
You can use your garden, if you have one. You can also leave the house to exercise – but stay at least 2 metres away from other people.
Whilst our fisheries remain open (except those subject
to a statutory close season), we all need to do what we can to help stop the
spread of this virus, so in addition to the above official advice, we also
require that if you do go for a fish, you separate yourselves from each
other, i.e. do not fish two people to a swim, but have at least one swim
free between you and the next angler, do not hang around in groups, ie
in the car park or crowd around other anglers, they may well be your friends
and you may well like a good chin-wag, but just because you may not exhibit
the symptoms, it doesn't mean you don't have it or have had it and could by
association with others contribute to the spread of the virus.
|16 March 2020 - Swims, Blocking Paths|
Please note that whilst you are entitled to fish with more than one rod, you
are not entitled to fish more than one swim at a time, you and ALL your
tackle must be in one peg.
"When fishing with multiple rods and lines, each rod
must be placed close together so that the distance between the butts of
the rods does not exceed 3m."
Likewise, if you are
fishing and using a bivvy or large shelter, if the swim is too narrow for
a bivvy, it does not give you the right to place it over paths and access
points and block access for other anglers, find another swim that is
better suited to setting up a bivvy.
All paths must be kept
clear and enable free access for ALL our members, anybody found blocking
paths etc, be it with a bivvy, open faced shelter or even large amounts of
tackle, will be asked to move it.
Please remember many of our members have mobility problems and the paths need to be clear and free so EVERYONE can enjoy their fishing, this selfish behaviour of blocking paths by a minority is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.
|12 March 2020 - Coronavirus|
In reply to some questions from members.
At the present time all club events, ie the work party on the 21st March and the match calendar are still going ahead, however the situation will be monitored and if the official guidance changes in respect of this virus, then, we will take their advice and act upon it accordingly.
In line with Government guidelines, we would ask that if you are thinking of attending these events or the fisheries and you are exhibiting signs of an infection, ie cough, temperature, headache, that you STAY AWAY and self isolate for seven days.

|17 February 2020 - Match Cancelled|
|The League of Gentlemen match scheduled for Wednesday 19th February 2020, has been cancelled.|
|8 February 2020 - Work Party Thanks|
My thanks to everyone who turned out for the working
party at Goose Green earlier today, namely Allan, Ant, Dudley, Terry, Paul,
Barry, Matt & Eddie .
Lots of rubbish cleared and burned as well as a few other tasks undertaken by the few to help maintain your fishery.
We have some big working parties coming up (when the weather hopefully turns for the better and dries things out a bit), where we will be addressing the paths that were damaged during the emergency works on Heron Pond in the autumn.
