Marsh Farm coaching facility improvements
Added on August 09, 2016
You may have noticed some work going on around Hill Pond over recent weeks.  We are improving our facilities for coaching at Marsh Farm.  We are installing a new coaching tackle store right next to Hill Pond so we actually have the tackle we need on hand for coaching sessions, and we are erecting a large canopy to provide shade and shelter from the elements for all users of Hill Pond but particularly school and coaching groups.  Seating and surfacing will be provided once the canopy is in place.  We have been able to do this thanks in part to a £5,000 grant from the Angling Trust fisheries improvement fund for which we are very grateful.
 
Hopefully when all the work is done we will have a top class coaching facility and a decent canopy/shelter that will benefit all the anglers and their families who enjoy fishing Hill Pond.

 


  

2016 AGM – The ‘End of an Era’

2016 AGM – The ‘End of an Era’


It was the end of an era and a slightly sad occasion when our irreplaceable Hon. Secretary said goodbye to the post he has occupied for 41 years. Irreplaceable may seem like too strong a word but’ when you take into account the workload he covered, with dedication and efficiency, combined with the unavailability of any possible recruits to the post, then ‘irreplaceable’ seemed to fit the bill quite adequately. Added to this a further 20 years service, encompassing Assistant Hon.Sec, Assistant Hon.FM Secretary and a committee member to boot, you have some idea of the wealth of commitment Malcolm bestowed on the Society.

However, GAS was not going to let such occasion pass without some form of commemorative celebration of Malcolm’s tenure. So it was arranged, unbeknown to Malcolm, for Godalming’s Mayor, Ann Bott, to attend under the guise of a trophy presentation to our National crucian record holder Steve Frapwell.

Shortly afterwards, our outgoing Hon.Secretary, looking slightly bemused, was made aware of the real reason for the Mayor’s attendance, which was to present Malcolm with a memento of his reign, a specially created card with many signatures and past photographs covering his 61 years in Society office(s), plus a generous ‘golden handshake’. Malcolm was also presented with a bouquet of flowers for his long suffering 'enduring' wife Thelma!

We have full coverage via a video of the whole presentation, to both Steve and Malcolm via this link.

One final duty for Malcolm was to present several of our juniors with trophies from the 2015 calendar. Again this can be viewed on video via this link. We also include numerous photos as well.
