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.
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.
