The donation is made up from a percentage of available funds & all day ticket monies collected throughout the year.


Car parking
As of today 16/06/2020 all cars must be parked in one of the three car parks, unless you have a blue badge 

Fish Stock Illegal Fishing
After several reports from members regarding poachers down at the lake I spoke to Lee from the EA who does the patrol's around the lake. I asked if he was still patrolling the lake which he told me they were, he said he would check the telephone reports to see if members are still reporting these incidents.

He called me last week and stressed that not a lot of calls have come in he also stressed without the calls coming in they will have to stop the patrols
To help Lee and his team catch these people I cannot stress how important it is that you report these people by phoning the EA.

Don't Phone a Friend, Don't Phone a Committee Member,
Phone The EA. 
 Telephone number 0800 80 70 60

Lee also stressed that you must phone the police on 101
quoting you are reporting the Theft Of Fishing Rights



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.


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.



For Sale
If any member has any fishing tackle they want to sell or just give away why not put it on your website please e-mail or phone the secretary with details who will be happy to put it on the website.
