We believe that new parking enforcement is being
implemented at the Brinsbury College Campus, which could affect our free
access to the lake even though we don't use their car park.
We are contacting the college to hopefully resolve this issue, but in the meantime, we recommend that as you pass through the car park, purchase a parking ticket, 50p for the day, to avoid any fines.
An update to this announcement will be made in due course.

River Arun at Pulborough - Stopham Road
We are pleased to announce that the Club has secured a new section of the River Arun at Pulborough, to compliment our existing sections in this area.
The section is situated on the A283 Stopham Road, west of Pulborough and
links our Stopham and Hassocks sections. Access is through a locked gate
using our Club lock code for the year and parking is best and safer in the
lay-by opposite Pulborough Garden Centre.
At the request of the landowners, no night fishing is permitted. Please inform the club secretary about your catches to allow us to assess its value. Photo: Andy Boorman
|8 June 2021 - Jon Ravenhall|
It is with great sadness that we announce the
passing of Jon Ravenhall.
Jon was a long standing member of the Society and formed an active part of our bailiff force for many years.
He was quite often to be found on Deep Lake in the summer evenings fishing a light waggler for skimmers, roach and rudd and with a great deal of success too, but was always willing to lend a hand to those who asked for a bit of advice and was always up for a chat, often to the detriment of his own fishing.
Jon will be sorely missed by a great many within the Society.
Funeral service for Jon will be held on Friday 18th June
at 2 pm at Worthing Crematorium, numbers at the service are restricted to
80. There will be a live stream of the service and if you wish to pay your
respects to Jon via the live stream, please contact us via
firstname.lastname@example.org and we will
forward the link and password to you.
The Officers and Committee extend their
deepest sympathies to Jon's Wife and family at this most difficult of times.

came to our attention at this weekend's work party that members have been
cutting back trees and shrubs around the fishery.
We respectfully remind members that the cutting back of any tree or shrub is against our rules and therefore strictly forbidden.
The only persons authorised to undertake any cutting back are the Fishery Management Team or club officials who have written permission from the Fishery Manager to deal with a specific problem.
If you see a tree or shrub that needs cutting back, please contact the Fishery Manager who will evaluate the situation and the fisheries team will deal with it accordingly.
Thank you for your understanding.

|23 March 2021 - New Chairman|
Following a Committee meeting held last evening, Paul
Hazeldine stepped down from the committee and his role as Chairman as he
advised he would be doing earlier this year in the newsletter and new
Chairman Paul Holden took up the reigns.
We are sure that along with thanks and best wishes given to Paul by the Committee last night, all of our members would like to thank Paul for all of his hard work and being a guiding light, during what has been a particularly difficult time in the clubs history and for all of his work and dedication to the Society as a Committee member prior to becoming Chairman.
Although Paul has stepped down from the committee, he will still be playing an active role in the Society as our Head Bailiff.
We would therefore like to take this opportunity to wish our new Chairman Paul every success for the future in his new role.
