The clubhouse and bar will be closed on Saturday evenings until further notice, as the number of customers did not justify us continuing to employ a barman and we could not get anyone to volunteer to run the bar on Saturdays on a regular basis. The bar will continue to be open from Sunday to Friday, staffed by volunteers. If you are able to help out please give the clubhouse a call.
The lock problem at the Ward's Lane stretch has been overcome, so the pegs are fully available again.
Broadgate Financial Management have generously sponsored a new Club Championship, which will run over the coarse fishing season. The first match will be the Parker Adams Memorial Trophy match on 10 July 2016 and the final match will be the Broadgate Financial Management match on 12 March 2017.
The first prize will be £1000, with other prizes for runner-up, third place, overall total weight and best individual match weight.
The traditional club championship will continue to run on the same basis as previous years - follow this link for a reminder of how that championship runs.
