Auction Time

As part of my role as Night Permit Secretary I am entitled to night permits for all the lakes, but as a non-fisherman I have no use for them, therefore as last year, the board have agreed that they can be auctioned off.

Following comments from various members, this year’s auction will be slightly different , with the lakes being split individually with members being able to bid for Gingerbread, Swan or McGregor lake.

Bids for the permits should be sent to the Night Permit Secretary by the 7th June 2023, with the bid clearly stating which lake it is for. Bids can be sent either by post, e-mail ( ) or Text ( 07540383400 ). You can bid as many times as you want, but please don’t phone asking for what the highest current bid is for a particular lake as I won’t tell you.

The only criteria for the bids is that the minimum bid must be the same as the cost for the current night permits (Gingerbread £225, Swan £175 and McGregor £125).

The winning bids will be advised via e-mail or text on the 8th June and once payment has been received, the night permit will be sent out.

The charity will be the same as last year, Tackling Minds, a group dedicated to promoting the mental health benefits of fishing to a wide group of people.

Happy Bidding
