The Association has a long list of improvements that it would like to carry out to its fisheries ranging from improving access and swim building to more repetitive tasks such as strimming excess vegetation from pathways and general tidying up. To this end, a working party sub-group has been established and we are keen to expand membership by enrolling other able-bodied and willing persons.
If you would like to participate in this work, you can enrol by e-mailing the working party organisers at firstname.lastname@example.org providing your name and a contact telephone number. There is no compulsion involved and you can choose what tasks you would like to help in and at what venues. You will find further information on the rear cover of your club membership book. If you have not got access to a computer, please phone Alan Davies, Secretary, on 07840 842417.
Details of forthcoming working party dates will be announced on the website and on club notice boards at the particular venue.
Working Party Priorities
- Road pothole repair will require a vibrating roller may be done later in year. Association should not waste resources on repairing road until the quarry site is cleared as this will require digger/lorry movements that will undo any works carried out.
New Lakes Project
- Swim placement/creation
- Tree works
- Bank clearance
- Grass sowing
- Path creation
- Finish Toilet
- Swims on island
- Swims on high bank to be rebuilt
- Create parking areas on container bank and raise track
- Contractor to do track around lake
- Rebuild/repair swims (20/20, deepwater fence, beach, pump house bay)
- Planting of ornamental lilies
- Lavendon Track and car parking compound
- Harrold track
- Swim clearance at Jungle
- Spraying of paths and swims at all sites
- Signage needed at several venues

Above work is not in priority order but Work Party group felt that the new lakes project and the track at Gingerbread are the most pressing issues at present.
