Click here for an update re membership renewal and new membership for next 2020-21 season
Added on April 29, 2020

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic we have been unable to print handbooks for the 2020-21 season. Instead, when a current season senior member renews, they will receive a 2020-21 season membership card which will need to be shown along with their current 2019-20 season handbook as proof of their 2020-21 membership. Therefore please could we ask all 2019-20 current season members to retain their current 2019-20 season handbook with photo(s) included for reuse next season.

For your information to see the letter including an example of the integrated membership card that you will receive once we have received your renewal application click here: letter-with-card.

For lapsed and new senior members we have a stock of 2019-20 senior handbooks that should be sufficient. Any lapsed or new senior member who renews/joins will automatically be sent a 2019-20 senior handbook to use alongside their 2020-21 membership card. The 2019-20 senior handbook will include the member details on the permit page as usual and a photo will need to be added by the member before use again as usual.
 
For juniors we also have a stock of 2019-20 junior handbooks that should be sufficient. All juniors who join for the 2020-21 season will automatically be sent (or given if joining in Apollo at Marsh Farm) a 2019-20 junior handbook to use alongside their 2020-21 membership card. The 2019-20 junior handbook will include the member details on the permit page as usual and a photo will need to be added by the member before use again as usual.

Annual General Meeting Cancelled and Late Entry Fee Suspension - click here for more information
Added on March 20, 2020

Due to the present public health situation with coronavirus and government advice on ‘social distancing’, the General Committee have decided to cancel the AGM, scheduled for 18 April 2020. The propositions detailed in the AGM notification will be carried forward to a future AGM.

The General Committee have also taken the decision to suspend the Late Entry Fee for all 2019-20 season members for the next 2020-21 season, i.e. for any member who is unable to renew their membership by 1st July 2020 there will be no late entry fee payment required for renewal applications received after that date at any time during the season.

We all have a duty of care to ourselves and our members and it makes little sense to call a meeting and thereby increasing the health risk in the current exceptional circumstances, which I hope you will understand.

In other respects the Society will operate as near normal as possible, for example fishing will be available as usual (subject to closures already notified in the Handbook). Membership should be renewed as normal. Please use the BACS payment system where possible.

The General Committee will continue to monitor the situation and members are advised to refer to the Society website or the Society Facebook group for updates.

David Johnson

Society Chairman
