Michael Palmer one of the last true Gentlemen passed away peacefully last night at 22:30 with his wife Pam by his side with great love till the end. Michael pulled through a life and death operation back last year and fought through a gruelling time only to lose that battle, but still had time for a smile and push himself to the gym and put himself through a tough workout that most would shy away from, but sadly he just could do no more. This is such a sad tragedy that took away the nicest person I have had the pleasure to meet in years, Michael’s strength and self-discipline to his disability had given me the strength with my own Disability to put my pains and grumbles to one side as he always had the smile that just took away your worries or concerns and was an extremely proud man and angler who loved his fishing till the end. I will keep you all informed as and when I get updates from Michaels Wife Pam in due course.

Horizon Members decided to ramp up the ends of the second bridge on the syndicate Lake to assist in getting the wheelchairs over safely to gain access to the double swim so two anglers can fish together assisting if needed. Paul and Sue O'Dee done the work whilst Dave n Sue P assisted behind the scene or scenery i should say ha ha. We still need to make a temporary repair to the first Bridge as the timber slat has rotted through and a worry for electric and Manual wheelchairs, if we did not do it then no one would i guess as disabled access is the last thing fishery owners think about even though we have the same rights to access to safe entry to a fishery as any other Angler.

On Weds morning six intrepid anglers set out on the new boat. Two 325hp outboards got us to the first mark ,Bullocks Patch, trying for Bream. Eventually Colin got the first bite and landed a Pouting smaller than a Gudgeon. This christened the new boat but not the specimen Keith was hoping for. A new mark was selected to the east of Nab tower and baits duly lowered. Keith P caught a nice Smooth hound and during the ensuing entanglement Dave landed a nice Garfish. This was used for bait and Dave promptly caught a small Tope. Fish came on a regular basis but the best was lost by Keith at the net. When it was time to leave skipper Keith went to lift the anchor but the winch would not work. With the sea getting heavier Jan uttered a silent prayer which was answered with discovery of a loose lead. Off we sped with all hanging on tightly. few screws n bits coming loose here n there but all these were minor teething problems. Everyone had a great day on a beautiful boat with great kit and Great Skipper & Regie the Crew. Anglers on the boat were Sue P, Colin B ,Keith P , Jan H, Brian R, Dave G Penned by Dave G [ms_slider id="2607" class=""]

But to finish the week off nicely we had a very large Donation of £1000.00 drop into our Letterbox this morning from a personal private source. More at the AGM 6th April.[/ms_alert]
PPA took over the Ex Mayors charity pledges that could no longer be fulfilled by him by the end of his term as Mayor of Portsmouth, this was a plus for horizon Angling Charity as we were chose as one of the top 12 charities cllr Frank Jonas wished to support. PPA chairman Mr Steve Cripps, his committee & Partners raised through various fundraising events and charity auctions over Dinner events enough funds to give the 12 charities the sum of £650.00 to aid their individual causes. This funding has come at a good time esp as we are in the process of funding phase 2 of the Lake project fitting out the swims and clearing the island of debris and making the whole lake safer for our members to use. more of this at this years AGM.
