AGM
Just to let members know the AGM as been moved from the lounge to the Ken Batey Suite (The Old Belvoir Suite)
This is located at the top of the car park.

Fish Theft & Illegal Fishing
I have had a meeting with Lee from the EA down at the lake
he has come up with some suggestions that we need to put in place around the lake to try and stop non members fishing the lake.
(Which I will be carrying out in the next few weeks)

At present a lot of members are seeing people around the lake who are not members, but not reporting it to the EA we must start reporting this if not then nothing can be done.

It is no good ringing me or speaking to a committee member the report must come from the person who sees these people on our lake.

The more reports that are logged with the EA the more frequent the visits from the EA will be to try and catch these people.

Don't think someone else has reported the problem pick up the phone and report. 
Telephone number 0800 80 70 60.


Also anyone you think is stealing fish must be reported to the police by ringing 999

Fish Theft
At the moment I'm receiving a lot of phone calls regarding fish being stolen from the lake.
This seems to be occurring between 18:00 & 22:00 on a daily basis, I will be speaking to the relevant authorities regarding this.

These people are not members of the fishing club and need to be stopped we need members to start patrolling the lake, if we are to stop the theft of fish.


ALL MEMBERS MUST DIP THEIR NETS BEFORE AND AFTER FISHING THE LAKE

Treasurer
Dave Brown the current Treasurer as decided it's time for him to step down from this role, Dave will be stepping down at the end of the 2017/2018 year.
The club will be looking for a new Treasurer after that, if anybody is interested please get in touch as we have to have checks done before we hand everything over.

I have been informed by the Welfare in order to get your new membership card for 2017 all you need to do is take a passport size photo to the Welfare.
You must put your name on the back of the photo

Bread
At a recent committee meeting all bread as been banned from the lake. This includes Feeding & as an Hook bait, please pass this on to members you know who use bread.


Gates

I am still getting a lot of reports of both gates being left open,
all members must close and lock both gates after entry.
If the middle gate is going to be constantly left open the committee will have know choice but to take the lock off.


The members voted to Ban all cars from parking on the grass, apart from official Blue Badge Holders.

Can we ask all members to police this and ask any member who is not showing a Blue Badge in their vehicle to park in one of the car parks.

Rules
Can I ask all members to check the club rules regarding line strength & hook size,
at present I'm receiving a lot of complaints regarding members using the wrong tackle.


CAR PARK
All Car parks are now open, can I ask all members to start using the car parks as normal,
under no circumstances should any member leave their car behind their peg. Apart from Blue Badge Holders

New Platforms
Can I ask all members to refrain from drilling any holes in the new platforms


Photos
If  any member has any photos from around the lake and would like them to go in the gallery please email them to me and I will put them on the website.
