Totham Pit Work Party Report

The pit was closed on Saturday 12th May and Sunday 13th May for a two day work party. 

On the Saturday we had a total of 15 people attend including bailiffs and we concentrated on two areas, the first being the woods, where we cleared all the paths, any previously felled trees and tidied the swims ready for further work in the future. Everything was burnt and its already looking alot better in there and will only improve with further work. The second area was the swims from Church Bay up towards the shallows. With the use of the boat and alot of hard graft in the rain we managed to completely replace 5 swims and wood chip them making them alot more comfortable to fish in the future. A number of dangerous trees were also dealt with.

Refreshments and home made cakes were provided during the day by Julie Stuart and these went down a treat as always. 

On Saturday evening everyone who chose to stay got together for a BBQ and a few beers, the weather was pretty fowl, but hey we were already soaked through anyway! Gary Squirrell and Julie Stuart did us proud with their cooking skills.  

On the Sunday we awoke to more rain, but started the day with fresh eggs which Nick and Britt had kindly brought across Saturday evening. 

We had a total of 9 people on Sunday and given this reduced number we concentrated our efforts on getting 3 more swims completely replaced and wood chipped on the far bank, the steps repaired in the car park swim, snags removed in Kiffs corner, a massive snag removed in Church Bay, the bridge over the outlet widened and lastly the rubbish from the far bank burnt.

Refreshments and home made cakes were again provided during the day by Julie Stuart. 

So a massive thank you to those that attended, they ranged in ages from 17 to 70 and every single person did just as much as they could. 

The Pit is beginning to take shape and there will be further closures during the year. If you can help do please come along, even if its just for a few hours as even this helps us massively.

Have you found any groundbait bowls in the Totham Pit car park?

I managed to leave 2 groundbait bowls in the car park of Totham Pit on Monday 26/03/18. They were black zip up bowls with one inside the other stuffed with other tackle, feeders, Nash ball makers, a catapult and other bit and pieces, nothing valuable but things that will be a pain to replace – Steve.

If you have found these items please contact the Membership Secretary or email webmaster@maldonas.co.uk who will put you in touch with Steve.
