Members We have setup another Trip to the Coloured Ponds for Sunday September 16th

See Derek or Sue Please as spaces are going fast. after members enjoyed the last annual trip to the MBK coloured Ponds Rake, on Sunday 1st it has been a success over the past three years and hope it was fun day for all to catch some nice specimens on two lakes exclusive to us HorizonDAC. Sue Hopkins won the day details Here.

..................

Mr J Knight has left the club along with his father so he informs the members but still awaiting for both Cards to be handed in as club property.(since been returned to fred along with another letter of complaint) The Letter of complaint John put in is a vendetta against another member and named people within it to back the complaint up those members were not asked or gave permission for the names to be included in the letter and wished not to be included when we investigated the complaint. independent trustees read the complaint and upheld against John as a personal vendetta against another member John cannot see this i am very surprised by his comments as to "twisted" it was read as is and by professionals and all concluded that the letter was a blatant vendetta and classed as bullying in its entirety, if you state any person in a complaint any management would wish to get those named views on the matter, but not one upheld Johns versions or were happy about not being asked to be included this. As legal requirement naming someone without their permission as having witnessed something must be investigated so ended up as sour grapes as no one wished John to leave but now it is just getting stupid and the committee will not have its good name blackened by any member just because they did'nt get there way. I thought i left theses things in the playground at school. the comment has been removed i do apologise but facts are facts the letter is open for all to read as not confidential as to our rules all minutes are open to all members if they wish to view both the complaint and letter of reply.

Next Work Party (weather permitting) T.B.A

If you have an Hour or more to spare then support your Club this winter by helping out clear some debris from the Lakes and banks leading to a safer more comfortable Angling experience, so rather than leave it to someone else come along and help out. The committee does not wish to make it mandatory within the rules as we would prefer it to be voluntary, so please don't leave it to someone else to do as they are our Lakes and need maintenance to be kept pristine and safe not only for us but the Disabled and Able alike who fish them, and would like to keep it that way.

Please let us know by using the "click Me" button below if you wish to attend as we supply Tea/Coffee or cold drinks if you prefer and Bacon Rolls to those who turn up, as every little helps keep it safe for others.   click Me

Testimonial

When the Horizon Angling Club for the disabled first contacted WetWheels in 2015 it was always going to be the perfect partnership. The Horizon AC ticked all the boxes for our WetWheels operation. A group of enthusiastic, friendly and down to earth guys who love their boat fishing going out on our fully accessible power catamaran with an owner and skipper who also love fishing was always going to work. We at WetWheels have been looking for a club just like Horizon to use our specialist facilities on board and now we are looking forward to many more successful fishing trips in 2016 and beyond.

So welcoming and they couldn't be more helpful. I can drop my disabled husband there, knowing they will help him if he needs help. And it's great for him to be amongst like minded people, enjoying the outdoors.

not listening to the club instructor ended up with this poor fella having a hook bum as it is known in the sport.
