The next work party will be on Sunday 17th April at Totham Pit

The next work party will be at Totham Pit on Sun 17th Apr starting at 8am (please meet by the container).  The plan (subject to approval from the owner) is to widen the bridge over the outflow to make it suitable for trollies, apply bark chippings and remove branches from the water.  All help you can give will be much appreciated and as this is an organised working party will contribute 10% discount towards your 2017-18 daytime membership fee.  The lake will be closed to fishing while the bankside works are completed.  For more info please contact Paul Kemp on the number listed in the 2016 rulebook.

Combi lock at Slough House Farm now changed to new number

Thank you to Shaun our Head Bailiff for working out how to change the number on the combi lock at Slough House Farm which has now been reset to this year’s number as printed on the back of the membership card and in the 2016 rulebook.  Next season I will ensure that both the old and new lock numbers are printed on the back of the new season membership stickers.  No other venues are affected as all have key locks.  Apologies for any inconvenience caused – Paul.
