We thought we would give you a short up date on recent work parties and the AGM
- The work parties at Moorlane have been a great success with turnouts, work accomplished and results in water quality, We have cleared all the trees and shrubs from the car park to the lake to allow the wind on the water. This has resulted in the Dissolved Oxygen levels in the water raising from 3.1 to 10.2. 10.2 is a fantastic level and one to be proud of so a big thank you to all work partie attendees. We have built a new bridge on to the island and started to remove the trees from there, This will require another work party to complete, We aim to put 3 or possibly 4 new swims on this island so all areas of the lake are accessible and comfortable to fish.
- AGM was held on the 15th Feb at Stanwell Village Hall, We had a good attendance, there was no rule changes put forward so all current rules apply, No one stepped down from the committee, or any changes made so the commitee stands. The Clubs accounts were presented and we are still in the black which is always good.
- We disgussed future stockings at Moorlane and in principal agreed on the type of stocking you our members woulds like. The committee will look at fish prices and availability of fish in view to stock in the autumn.
- Work Party dates for the River Colne are Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th March at 09:30am, Meeting place Hithermoor car park. Please bring tools for cutting and clearing swims.
