Wishing all club members old & new all the very best for 2023.
Please could anyone using our venues take home your rubbish it is unpleasant to see & can be dangerous to Wildlife.
Looking back 2022 was a very successful year for the club with increased membership & day tickets sales.
The hot spell during the summer causing some problems with Water & Oxygen levels on the lakes at our site in Landbeach.
Our thanks go to Les, John & Colin for their efforts to reduce the impact by pumping Water from Leland to Atkins & on to Magpie.
The improvement on Water & Oxygen levels had a very positive effect on the number of fish being caught.
The recent cold snap in December causing the lakes to freeze over, up to aprrox 3 inches thick. Rumour has it that John Dyer was seen doing a solo performance of a Torvill & Dean routine on the ice.
The website for the club should if not already be up & running very soon. Finding content that will keep visitors interested in viewing the website difficult.
There is a new ‘contact us’ form on the front page of the website please feel free to enter your details & any comments you may have.
For 2023 The Club will hopefully be getting a new card payment machine from Barclays Bank. This should improve on the current machine that has a very limited signal range.
In the previous Newsletter reference was made with the purchase of a Portakabin to be used for Club Meetings also to promote the social side of the club.
So far despite a trip to Birmingham and various other attempts at finding a suitable building, have unfortunately been without success. We will however keep trying.
I will try to get access this year to our Facebook page (I personally have never used it) this can be updated quicker and keep members informed.
From April 1St – 31st October Leland Water day tickets can be purchased for Club Members only. It will be very carefully monitored & controlled.
No advance booking, from 07.00 – 19.00 daily, Maximum 2 rods, no braided line, must have the correct tackle, cost will be £10.00 per angler per day.
Leland Water is a very quiet & tranquil lake please respect this at all times.
I have been secretary for a few months now administration & change over from previous secretaries at times has been challenging but progress is being made.
For 2023 I would like to meet more of our members & discuss any issues you may have. I would welcome any input to add to the Website, Newsletter or Facebook page.
Many thanks in advance for your help and support.
