Annual work party 2017 – a message from the Chairman

Chairman Glenn Shiplee would like to thank officials I. Moore, D. Gladwell, and R. Harrison for turning up for the annual work party.

Also members M. Baldry, Malcom and Shirley Brooks, T. Buck and P. Nobbs who despite our ageing years worked non-stop for a good 5 hours at the Layby Pit.

The rewards could be seen and the Pit looked really idyllic after the work had been carried out.

Unfortunately for a club with nearly 400 members, a turnout of 9 is not great.

This is 5 or 6 hours, once a year, to ensure we continue to have a very idyllic, safe and picturesque fishing for all our members to enjoy at a really affordable price.

I know that we could all find “better things to do” in reality, and its a thankless task, but the rewards are there to be seen.

Even our Treasurer gave up his weekly early Saturday fishing session to work.

It’s a shame others couldn’t.

Apologies were received from G. Shiplee (jnr), A. Ling and M. Tricker who were all working.
