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 11.

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 may only be charged the one fee. The Federation are still in discussions with the authorities to try and resolve the issue.

Visit by Development Officer

As in previous years if any club would like me to come along to either a committee meeting or the Club AGM, during the winter months. To discuss either the work of the Federation and hear members concerns. Then let me know well in advance and I will try to attend.

 

Development Officer: Mr Robbie Marshall,

Mobile: 07713 652773                       E-Mail: rob_f_marshall@hotmail.com
