Notice Board

Milton and Shelley will be closed to members on Weds 6th September. The Society is hosting an event for the Fishery Management students from the college. During the year they have completed a huge amount of work for us; so this is both a thank you......and a look forward to more help this year. Any members night fishing on Tues 5th September, will need to vacate their swims by 7.30 am on the 6th.

Many thanks for your cooperation.

Graeme Cornell Chairman.

Please be aware that there will be a work party on the weekend of the 19th and 20th of August, the work will involve maintenance to some the bridges meaning that access around the fishery will be extremely restricted. All members are welcome to come along and help out.

Graeme Cornell Chairman.

Dip your nets.. Please ensure that your landing nets, mats and weigh slings are dipped on every visit to Laybrook. With the current high temperature and increased water temperature, there is a greater risk of spreading fish disease. Help us to look after the fish stock.  Many thanks.

Graeme Cornell Chairman.

A huge amount of work has been done on the fishery over the last 5 days. This includes resurfacing the car park, laying electrics to power new aerators on Shelley and Sutton and improving the pathway. Students helped us drain the stock ponds and sort the mirror carp, health checking each of the fish. Huge thanks to the members who have given up a whole week to accomplish this. 

Please take extra care on the fishery as these newly rolled surfaces will take some time to bed in.

Stock Ponds
Please do not feed the fish in the new stock ponds. They are being fed on a measured and balanced programme, under no circumstances should any food be put in these ponds.

Shelley and Milton: we had a very successful work party with the college students today, 27th March. They completed the second application of Siltex in the lakes and built a sluice in Byron. Shelley and Milton might look cloudy for a few days but fishing should not be affected. My grateful thanks to all who helped today and especially to the students and their tutor. Without them, these tasks would be very difficult to do.

Laybrook car park: you will see that we have had a large delivery of road planings which will be used to improve and enhance the car park and entrance. Please watch this website and the noticeboard for dates when we will work on this. We will need help! Thanks.

Graeme Cornell Chairman.

Security at Laybrook: can all members please ensure that the toilets are closed when they leave and that the gate is properly locked. Thanks.

AGM March 1st 2017
Many thanks to those members who attended the AGM held this year in the John Selden pub. It was a much better turnout than usual.
I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and was very grateful for the many positive comments I received. It was very useful to share with members the photographs and information about all of the work that has been achieved on your behalf in the past year.
I think we all appreciated the food provided and following the formal part of the evening were entertained by Peter Springate’s presentation. It is great to see how good some anglers are !
My thanks to the Committee for their continued hard work; for all of those who help us throughout the year, and to those who came to the AGM.

Byron Update
Early last year a number of trees fell during the storms. One of those, in the west corner of Byron, near swim 10, still presents a danger. We continue to await the electricity board dealing with the matter. WDPS are not permitted to take any remedial action because of the possible dangers. Members are reminded to avoid this area and not to interfere with the trees in any way.

Graeme Cornell Chairman.

Please note: The gate code for the Arun car park has been changed to 1282, apologies for any inconvenience this has caused
