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.

Bunch of keys found at Totham Pit

One of the bailiffs (Ken) at Totham Pit has been given a bunch of keys that someone left hanging in the lock on 30th March (Good Friday).  If they are yours please contact Ken or email the webmaster on webmaster@maldonas.co.uk

Howells and Slough House Bankside Warning

Howells is extremely waterlogged and boggy in places.  Please can members take care and use common sense when walking round and setting up so as not to churn the bank side and swims up too much please.

Also I am receiving reports that Slough House Farm is very muddy after all of the recent rain and the farmer is regularly accessing the site for sugar beet storage purposes.  Please proceed to your swim with caution especially if using a barrow which is likely to sink into the mud.

Finally the car park at Slough House West is very muddy due to winter tractor activity, you might want to avoid visiting at the moment unless you have a four wheel drive vehicle.

The toilet at Slough House Farm has been stolen

Please be aware that the toilet at Slough House Farm was stolen sometime between Fri evening 2nd Mar and today Tue 6th Mar. If anybody knows anyone that was fishing between these times please can you ask them if they saw anything suspicious and pass on any information to Ryan Boot on the phone number listed in the rulebook or by email to webmaster@maldonas.co.uk

Next Chelmer Canal Trust Work Party – CANCELLED!

We are sure that it will come as no surprise to you that the litterpicking session on Saturday (3rd March) in Chelmsford has been cancelled by the organisers.

Please make sure that you have the date of our next Chelmer Canal Trust work party booked – Saturday, 7th April. Full details will be sent out a few days beforehand.

If you are looking for a Chelmer Canal Trust event to take part in before the next work party then why not consider joining the next monthly walk on Wednesday, 21st March which will explore the waterways of Chelmsford City centre and the watermeadows downstream?

If you are out and about along the Navigation please look out for any Floating American Pennywort. And if you can cope with the technology, pictures showing how much of it there is, and its location in the Navigation, can be very helpful (email: neil@chelmercanaltrust.co.uk). If you are not sure what Floating American Pennywort looks like – and to be reminded of what jolly folk our work party volunteers are –  CLICK HERE and look at a few of the pictures in our Work Party reports.

Stay warm and safe.

Kind regards – Neil.

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.
