18/05/2018      All members must carry and use a fish antiseptic. This is compulsory and part of the club rules.This should be applied to any sore areas                          on the carp and other species especially concentrating on their mouths. We need to take more care of our fish which is also for your                                benefit in the long term.

17/11/2017      The sponsored match this year raised £1056.45p. This was achieved by the 8 members who took part. Imagine what could be raised if                            more members got involved. The charity chosen this year was HAMLET. This is a Norwich based charity helping children and young                                adults who suffer from disabilities and complex health issues. 

04/05/2017       Club rules forbid the use of floating baits. This applies to loose fed baits as well as hook baits. This is especially a problem with                                        bread. We do not want to encourage the carp to look for food on the surface. It also floats into other swims causing a nuisance to                                    fellow members. Please abide by the club rules. There can be consequences for breaking them. Also do not throw floating bait,                                        especially bread, into the lake when you pack up.

14/04/2017       For those casting a bomb or feeder across the lake towards the aerator please keep well away from it. It will not withstand being hit                                  by a careless cast.

24/02/2017        All platforms now have astroturf but please remember that platforms can still be slippery. Also be careful if you step off the side of                                    the platforms because the banks are soft in places.The banks have been reinforced in places and further work will be required.

24/02/2017         Please note that the astro turf on the stagings is not suitable for laying fish on and the current rule remains that fish must either be                              unhooked in the landing net suspended off the ground or on an unhooking mat.

07/06/2015         The committee have ruled that barbecues are fires and so are banned according to the club rules. The use of a gas ring or light will                              be allowed.
