A.G.M 2016-2017


It has been fair to say that this year has been disappointing due to the “David” situation.

However I must thank my committee. In particular Roly and Richard Watson in dealing with the financial matters, John Rozier and Ian Wood in the day to day running of the club.

A tremendous effort with everybody pulling together. Also work done throughout the year by Andrew Winfield, Ryan Baker, Andy Arbon, Miles, Robert Hubvert, Justine and Ken for getting the trophy and Nick Chuddy for keeping the toilets so clean. If I’ve forgotten anybody please accept my apologies.

One of the jobs undertaken was clearing the stock ponds which are now ready for fish. We welcome back George Rodwell and Damien who have kindly agreed to run the Junior section. This is very important for the club some of you sitting here tonight were Junior members!

We have stocked Barham and Alderson with carp, and the canal at Alderson with small roach. The carp are already showing at Barham. The river has fished exceptionally well this winter with quality roach showing one fish topping 2lb. Work has been done creating swims in the hazelwood at Bramford. Thanks to Roly, Steve Prentice, Les Hart, Ken Elmy and others. We had a fine match there in March in memory of K Gosling. Also thanks to Paul Ryan and team of bailiffs who have done a fine job particularly at Alderson where there were a few problems. A little more tolerance and respecting the person in the next swim is the answer.

We need to move forward together as a club and respect each other’s form of fishing as I said 3 years ago when you elected me Chairman.

We are open to all aspects of fishing if anybody has a problem rather than air it on social media or the bank why not come to a monthly meeting or contact me. Try to promote the club more – we need more members.

Lastly enjoy your fishing and don’t forget to smell the flowers along the way.
