Work Parties

We urgently need help to maintain the Nature Reserve, especially some of the fishing pegs. If you could spare a couple of hours next Saturday morning to help we would be very grateful.

Evening Matches

The entry for our Evening matches has now reached 12 which is the maximum that the pond can comfortably accommodate.

If you are thinking of fishing, to avoid disappointment, it would be wise to check if there is room before coming down. (Often the full number are not present.)

Bob Lewis

We have been informed that Bob died on Saturday evening (9 July) after a short illness. A keen match angler and committeeman Bob’s contribution to the club  and support for his fellow anglers was invaluable. We would like to send our condolences to Bob’s family.

Hi, just to let you know the collection plate from dads funeral raised a fabulous £416.40 so which is to be split between the angling club & the nature reserve. The money is with Rowleys atm who will be sending the cheques a week on Monday. Massive thanks to everyone who came & donated, very much appreciated.
Thank you all
Claire, Sam & Steve

Don Rickell

We have been advised that Don Rickell, Vice President of the angling club, died on Sunday 13 March. Having been involved with the angling club for over 60 years and a member of the Nature Reserve Management Committee, Don’s knowledge and support will be sadly missed and we send our condolences to his family.


Derick Wilby

We are sorry to inform members that Derick died on Thursday 10 March after a short illness. A keen supporter of our Junior Angling Scheme and a regular helper at Nature Reserve Open Days, Derick’s wit and patience, when teaching others, will be sorely missed and we would like to offer our condolences to his family.
