Minutes of the 2017 AGM

For those members who couldn’t make it along to our Annual General Meeting on Sun 22nd Jan here are the AGM 17 Minutes and the Fishery Management report.

Entrance now clear at Beckingham Hall

With many thanks to the Chairman and the member fishing at Beckingham Hall on Tuesday the fly tipped rubbish that was blocking the entrance gate at Beckingham Hall has now been moved out of the way.  The incident has been referred to the relevant authorities to investigate further as not only are the people who dumped the rubbish liable to prosecution but also the people living at the address where the clearance works were carried out.


Just one of the photos submitted as evidence, you can just about make out the entrance gate to  Beckingham Hall in the left background of the photo.

Possible traffic disruption on Sun 25th Sep

Members are reminded that the Maldon Half Marathon is being run on Sunday 25th Sep and this might disrupt the flow of traffic near some of our fisheries such as the Railway Pond, Howells and Little Park.  Any member looking to drive through Maldon or Heybridge could get delayed.  For more info and a map of the route please see http://www.maldonhalfmarathon.com/.  Members heading back towards Maldon after the Howells carp match might need to find an alternative route.   Thank you to Dennis Sherwood for drawing this event to my attention.

Well done Bill

Congratulations to one of our members Bill Woollcott who fished the Division 2 AT National on the Fazeley Canal at Minworth, Birmingham and won his section.


Here is a photo of Bill showing off his medal!
