IF YOU ARE THE LAST ANGLER TO LEAVE THE POND PLEASE MAKE SURE THE GATES ARE LOCKED AND THE COMBINATION CODE IS ROTATED FROM ENTRY CODE .
Winter work party is an ongoing concern,with low turnouts for helping on a Saturday am between Nov & March.It is understandable that some work or have other commitments but if you are able to help out during the winter it would be of great help.See one of the bailiffs or have a word with those involved! Thankyou.
I hope that you had a successful season last year and you have an even better one this year. There was a good turnout of members present at this years A.G.M 2017,but was very DISAPPOINTED in the lack of members who did not TURNUP, SO THOSE OF YOU WHO DIDN'T ATTEND I hope there will be no complaints
. The Club’s finances are in an extremely good position and fish stocking will continue as and when finances allow.
The River Leen in the Bull Field and pegs 1 to 3 on the river will be closed for fishing between 15th March and 15th June inclusive. Don’t forget your rod license expires on 31st March 2017, and don’t forget your current membership expires on 31st MARCH 2017. If for any reason a Sunday match venue is closed or un-fishable, the main pond will be closed without prior notice and used for the duration of the match. I apologise now if this causes you any inconvenience in the future. Pegs 1 to 3 and the river , after 15th June,will remain open during matches on the main pond.
Private access is through the locked gate running along side the railway.Combination code is required.The code MUST NOT be passed to NON Members.Visitors must be let in by a member. *This is being observed and no excuses for passing on the code will be accepted ! *

Old Mill Development and Pond Area Works.
The pond and river was again electro fished in Nov 2015 to remove Pike, many were removed up to 10lb’s in weight, this is an ongoing policy of the Club. Future electro fishing is under revue.
Summer 2016 saw improvements by Tony and Mark to create better fishing pegs,solid concrete areas are now on the main pond.
A few over-hanging trees have been felled over the winter months. Other trees have been pollarded and the hedges trimmed. Bank-side planting will continue, this has had a positive effect in encouraging fish to visit or remain in the main pond.
Please contact Mr R Pickin to book in for a sunday match..The Sunday matches for the coming season start in APRIL 2017,we have 26 matches this year. Due to the continuing interest by members wishing to fish the Sunday matches it will now be necessary to put your name down for the following weeks match to ensure yourself a peg.For the first match you also need toput your name down.

The main pond and back pond will be closed from 3.00pm on these days, to allow them to settle. The first match will be on May 2017 to Aug 2017 16 weeks. Pegs will be £1.00p plus optional pools of £5.00p the draw for pegs will take place at 5.00pm prompt, and we will start fishing when everyone is ready,(to stop people walking about waisting time ) finishing at 9.00pm,approx depending on the light. Points will not be totalled until after the last match, those anglers not fishing a minimum of 8 matches will not be awarded any points You will be allowed to drop your worst three results. When matches are in progress at the pond, this includes any Sundays, only members fishing the match will be allowed access. This is because of complaints about the number of people walking around the pond, during matches. If you want to see what has been caught then by all means turn up for the weigh in.
