Voluntary Coaching

I can now confirm that Sport England have officially approved the grant application for these coaching sessions.

I am delighted to advise that we have set up a coaching scheme for Junior anglers. This is a joint venture with Kelvedon & District Angling Association & Maldon Angling Society and the plan is to hold coaching sessions throughout the May-October period on a variety of waters, split between the two clubs. Those enrolled will be welcome at all sessions, & we’ll cater for both novices and those who already fish.

Angling Coaching Initiative 2018.04.29 Flyer

We will be running this through accredited Angling Trust Level 2 Coach’s Graham Garnham & Chris Burt, who both hold Enhanced DBS checks, Safeguarding & Protecting Children, First Aid course etc.

We’ll be teaching them everything to get them hooked, from starter sessions using a 4 metre whip, onto full tuition on float rods, feeders, and pole fishing. Every variation we can in fact, the aim is to capture their interest and give them a sport for life!

So if you would like to enrol into the scheme please let us know, parents who’d like to fish too are welcome, though you might have to share the same swim. There will be nominal charges only for bait and tackle replacement, this is a voluntary scheme.

We need Volunteer Assistants as well, if you’d be prepared to help at some or all the sessions, can you please contact me? You would only do as many or as few sessions as you want. We are already funding three of our Volunteers to take the Angling Trust level 1 Coaching qualification, to strengthen our team. We plan to role this scheme out to other clubs too in the future so you can join us with that in mind.

High water at Little Park now on the move

Thank you to Ryan and Ken for clearing the blocked overflow pipe at Little Park which had started to flood.


Hopefully the water level will return to normal in the next day or two.

Howells gate

The Howells gate is regularly being left unlocked by members, not farm workers.  While we appreciate that the padlock can be a bit tricky to close at the best of times, the next person caught leaving the gate unsecured will be made an example of - The Howells Bailiffing Team.

Would you like to be our new Senior Match Secretary?

We are looking for a member to organise some senior matches over the coming season and beyond.  If you are interested in this voluntary unpaid position please contact an existing committee member who can then put your name forward at the next meeting.

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.
