Just a reminder AGM is on the 23rd November at Bentley Brook Inn at 7:30pm prompt
Please let Karl know if your attending by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org (if you havent already)
Please note we’ve cancelled the daytime event on the 10th September due to lack of attendance, the evening meal will go ahead as scheduled but will be a more relaxed meal with a potential raffle rather than the planned auction.
New cards are available for download for this season – remember to make sure you have a copy with you and your rod license when fishing as Nigel will be checking them rigorously this season.
If you haven’t got a photo uploaded please email me a photo (head and shoulders passport style) asap as you otherwise won’t be able to access the membership card
If your still one of the few people to pay via the bank please ensure payment this next week

I’ve just uploaded the latest userguide for this coming season available in the downloads section once you’ve logged on, please note these now contain ordnance survey maps with w3w locations for all major points of interest including beat limits, please note that these were originally based on fairly vague maps so although I’ve tried my best to keep accurate I do expect some inaccuracies especially as w3w is a 3m square, especially when trying to transpose differing maps and overhead satellite imagery and choosing the right w3w grid ….. – If you think you can provide more accurate w3w when your fishing these beats please capture it and send through to me to update.
For those who don’t know or aren’t familiar with w3w please see the below for some good info (yes you can use w3w offline with no mobile reception)
I’ve sent the latest newsletter out this evening – if you haven’t received it please check your spam folder and if not present please contact me.

STANDING UP FOR RIVERS
Wild fish and their waters need you.
Our report on the Environment Agency (EA) ‘Doing its job?’ exposed its lamentable failure to protect our rivers and their wildlife. Now we need your support.
We have launched a Parliamentary Petition calling on Government to give the EA the mandate and resources to do a proper job. The EA needs to be shorn of Government directions to put the economy before the environment and it needs the funding to enforce existing legislation without fear or favour.
In the content that follows you will find how to sign and share the petition and a letter template for writing to your local MP. We need 100,000 signatures to get a debate in Parliament and have until 24th November 2021
