To All Members :
Due to the latest Government update and subsequently the lockdown rules being relaxed for certain sports, we have been in contact with the fisheries to ascertain what is the current situation in regards to fishing and if there is anything that is required by us at this time.
Three Oaks Fisheries
Roy has confirmed that Three Oaks will be opening, and An Information Board is situated in carpark with this in mind has made sure there is hot water available in the Toilets (please bring own gels and wipes and tissue). He has asked that prior to anyone coming to fish, and so that the social distancing rule can be adhered to. This is to ensure there is a space available for you. Roy has also stated that the Cabin will be shut however he will take orders through the hatch window if you require anything from the shop or food.
It will be on a “first come, first served basis” to obtain a peg. (maybe advisable to phone to say “I’m on my way any chance of saving a peg” worth a go).
Tony has confirmed that only a total of 10 will be permitted to fish. This guideline has been set out by the farmer who controls the access. Please note this is not 10 Horizon members, but 10 syndicate members, who we as a club hold 6 memberships for. Tony has therefore asked for one weeks’ notice to be given in advance, and this can be booked by going through Sue O’Donnell. Sue holds the flags and gate fobs for all the members.
Tony has requested all Anglers will need to bring their own toilet roll and hand sanitizer for the onsite Portaloo. This is your responsibility as none will be provided by him at this present time.
We have been liaising with Operations Managers at the Havant to discuss our access to the lakes, however unfortunately we have just been notified that sadly the decision to keep the lakes closed for fishing purposes has been has been made. We will of course keep you updated when this changes.
So all thank you all for being patient and please work with us whilst we await to get back to normality.
On another note it would be appreciated if all outstanding subs are paid immediately. We now have the facility to accept BAC’s payments therefore these can be paid directly in to the Horizon Account, and the details I have listed below. Once payment is received a new membership card will then be issued. If you choose to drop off a payment then please phone or text Sue beforehand and we will ensure the card is ready for you.
Please note that none of the Fishing Venues can be visited if your membership has not been updated.
