The price of a night permit is £200 per year for Gingerbread Lake and £150 for the two lakes at Sandy and must be obtained in advance by completing the relevant application form in the membership book to be forwarded to the Night Permit Secretary. The number of night permits is limited and applicants may be placed on a waiting list until a place becomes available. Existing permit holders must renew their subscriptions before 30th April or risk losing their place on the list of permit holders.

The subscription year runs from 16th June although the statutory close season limits fishing on our river stretches until 14th March each year. Our still waters remain open all year round. Please note that we do not issue any part-year memberships.

In addition to the membership book, all new members will receive a key enabling them to open padlocks to gain vehicular access to some of our waters.
