|21 May 2019 - Litter|
Take your rubbish home with you, this includes discarded lines and tackle, which is not only littering and contrary to our rules, but also serves as a massive hazard to wildlife.
A length of line was collected today by peg 11 on Heron Pond at Goose Green, approx 50m in length and around 10lb breaking strain that had just been left loose on the ground.
May we remind you of our rules, littering is not acceptable in any form and could result in the loss of your membership.
We don't have many rules, but those we do have are fairly simple to follow, if you find you cannot abide by our rules, then please find another club because litter louts are not welcome at Pulborough AS.
