SECRETARY NEWS UPDATE
2020 Membership Cards; will expire at the end of this month and should be renewed ASAP. Bailiffs will be checking members cards actively especially over the next month to check cards are valid, if yours has expired do not bother going to the club fisheries. Members with expired cards are barred from fishing club waters and will be expected to leave the fishery and not return until they have renewed their club membership.
Fishery Maintenance Development Fund; Members renewing are reminded that in addition to the renewal fee due they are now expected to contribute a mandatory fee of £5.00 towards the club’s new fishery Fund.
Membership Pricing; Members are reminded juniors i.e. 11-16 year olds can join the club for free. So, if you have youngster who might be interested in trying his hand at a bit of fishing then he can join the club for free and fish all of the club’s fisheries. He will be required to fill in a membership application form and send it to me so I can generate and issue him with a membership card.
Annual General Meeting: I have to again apologise to members about having our AGM. This is not possible as most will understand because of government rules imposed the result of the Cofid-19 pandemic. I can assure members though when possible this will be held so that any important business can be addressed.
Environment Agency Licence; Members are reminded of the importance of having one with the penalty of a £2500.00 fine not something most anglers would not wish to receive through their letterbox. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
