Dear Members, As the complex has now been open for approaching 4 weeks,
the Committee would like to take this opportunity to raise a few points that require your attention please.
The Committee would initially like to thank you all for a calm and controlled start to the re-opening
and hope you are all enjoying your fishing after the enforced period of closure.
Some of the photos on Facebook indicate that many of you are enjoying some exceptional catches.
Many of you will be aware that we currently have a lot of new birdlife on the complex as well as expectant mums sitting on nests.
Please take extra care over the next few weeks and as much as possible try not to disturb the youngsters.
It is appreciated that you may not relish a mum and her chicks in the proximity of your swim
but please be patient until they move on and give them the best possible chance of survival.
Many of you are asking about guest tickets and the Committee will be discussing this at the next meeting.
Up until now it has been perceived that a period of time without guests has given members a good opportunity
to use the complex while attendee numbers have been high.
Guest tickets will obviously be reintroduced at a point in time where it is viable,
without resulting in too many people on site at one time.
We must continue to take social distancing into account for a while longer yet.
One disturbing matter that needs addressing is the amount of discarded
and broken line and rigs which is already abundant on Churchyard Lake in particular.
With such a shallow lake, lily pads and reeds, tethered fish is a constant problem
and anglers are asked to please try to reduce the instances of lost line and tethered fish by casting with more care and attention.
A distressing photograph of one of the new fish added to Churchyard last year with a terribly damaged mouth
and carting large amounts of broken line is far from ideal and your help in trying to avoid repeats of this type of situation is greatly appreciated.
Thank you all for your co-operation and assistance with the above.

After routinely reviewing cctv it is noticeable that
some members are still not dipping sufficiently.
The whole of the mat / cradle must be totally covered by the disinfectant solution.
Leaving the mat folded up inside the case and dipping the case
is not sufficient as you cannot guarantee the folded-up
equipment gets coated with solution.
Please ensure you take all parts of the mats cradles out of its cover bags
and dip them individually, thus ensuring all parts are covered.
