Award Offer Letter
Dear Mr. Grosvenor
We are delighted to inform you that, subject to compliance with the
requests in this letter, the Angling Trust has agreed to award Bay Malton
Angling Club a grant of £5,000 towards a total project cost of £10,060
for the project titled Match Lake Repairs.
Members, please note the Match Lake will be closed during the week when the work commences this winter so as to complete the project on time. Thank you for your cooperation during this period.
On behalf of everyone, I would like to thank the Angling Trust for this grant towards the cost of replacing all the pegs and boards on the Match Lake at Border Fisheries.
Bay Malton Angling Club.
The owner of this pool as put this property on the market for sale. So as from the 31st December 2018 this water will no longer be available for members to fish.
When the property sells the owner willl put us in touch with the new owners so we can negotiate a new lease.
Change of Access by new tenants.
As from Monday 1st, October 2018 access to this water is only available from 9 a.m till 17:00 hrs Monday to Friday, No weekend fishing allowed.
All members must vacate the water before 17:00 hours.
We do not have access anymore via our locks.
Due to these restrictions, we may need to consider if this is suitable for our members in the future.
July News update
Due to increasing costs and a trend in membership, the Committee has decided to abolish certain classes of membership. Over the next two years, we will be working towards 2 classes of membership only.
ADULT MEMBERSHIP £80.00 NO JOINING FEE
JUNIORS UNDER 18 £20.00
NO MEMBERSHIP CARDS ON HOLD
Anyone who joins the club in 2019 will automatically pay the Adult membership price of £80.00
This means that O.A.P and disabled memberships will no longer exist anymore. Any member falling into these classes now will increase in two stages of £15.00 per year.
Guest Tickets from 1st January 2019
All Guest tickets will be £7.00 per day.
We are sorry for having to do this but feel if we don’t act now then by 2020 the club will no longer be able to afford all of your waters and will have to let some of them go.
On a good note though, since the £15000 investment of the new fish to the club waters this year. The club has seen a vast improvement to the catches of fish been reported by the members on all of the waters.
Bradley pool opened up in April and although it is fishing hard the water will become popular with our members. Arrangements are in place for more silverfish to be introduced to this water around November time.
Grange pool update
The owner as informed me that work is taking place to sort the situation out. The insurance company as had a company working on sorting the water quality out and as given the go-ahead to say it is ok.
An outlet pipe is to be installed to sort the drainage problems out. Work is then going to be done to sort around the pool, car parking area and driveway.
The owner currently as a claim going on with the insurance company for his fish loss etc, so hopefully this will soon be sorted later on this year.
Despite all the rumors the club as not walked away from this water, I am constantly down there working with the owner to resolve this problem and when it is sorted out we will be opening the water back up.
Dennis Deakin as decided to retire from his role as water maintenance officer due to health reasons. I would like to thank Dennis on behalf of myself and the club for all the hard work he as done for the club and I am sure we will see him knocking about fishing on the waters.
