Work Parties

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 enroll by e-mailing the working party organisers at alz3159@hotmail.com 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 01480 215526.

Details of forthcoming working party dates will be announced on the website and on club notice boards at the particular venue.
