Minutes of 2018 AGM

Our Annual General Meeting held on Sun 21st Jan at Great Totham Village Hall was a lively affair and was our best attended for many years with over 80 members present on the day.  For those members who couldn’t make it along here are the AGM 18 Minutes and the Fishery Management report 2018.

A blue hat was left behind after the meeting, this can be claimed back from the membership secretary or picked up at next years AGM if you can survive outside without it until then.

Keepnet update

At the January committee meeting it was unanimously agreed to lift the ban on keepnets with immediate effect until 31st March.  The keepnet ban had been introduced as early as possible following notification of a local outbreak of KHV (Koi Herpesvirus) however the water temperature has now dropped to well below the minimum danger level for transmitting KHV of 16 degrees so the ban has been lifted and will be reviewed at the 4th Apr committee meeting.
