NOTICE FOR CLUB SECRETARIES


Poaching
Please ensure any potential poaching issues or information is forwarded to the Federation Development Officer as set out in the forms re-issued in July 2011.

Private Water Bailiffs
It has come to the attention of the Federation that the court service are applying the charge of £100 for the appointment or renewal of Private Water Bailiffs. These charges are in line with the guidelines, however in the interim clubs should make one application for all renewals and appointments in this way clubs will then only be charged the one fee. The Federation are currently in discussions with the various authorities to try and resolve the issue.

Slurry Spreading
Despite the recent press statements there is still a closed period for spreading slurry. All anglers please note the closed period for the spreading of dirty water and slurry is from 16th October until 31st January 2013. If you witness any slurry spreading taking place during this period ensure it is reported on the following telephone number 0800/807060. 

Catchment Stakeholder Group (CSG) Meeting
The next round of meetings is due to take place in October and November. For the full listing of dates and venues see our Website Latest News. Make sure your club is well represented.
