By special arrangement, and as a request from some of our members, the venue for the AGM, The68Cafe, will be putting on some great home-cooked food. This is to help those members who are travelling from a distance.
The menu is great value for money and food can be purchased from 6pm onwards – the meeting will start at 7.30pm as previously advertised.
Unfortunately we have had to cancel the upcoming end of season dinner due to a lack of interest. The decision was taken week commencing 1st November as only 15 people had shown interest.

Tommy Carr, one of our much liked and regular anglers, celebrated his 95th birthday today (Tuesday 30th) with a session at the lakes. Certainly no stranger to the lakes, Tommy, from Sunderland, has fished here for over 40 years and still thinks it’s a great place to visit. He’s no stranger either to the weekly totals with his name appearing on the list on a regular basis. Tommy even remembers fishing at the lakes in the days before the lodge was built – when there were no facilities and you had to be creative if you needed to go. He fished the lakes with his son-in-law John and caught himself a couple of fish to celebrate. As a birthday gift the lakes management presented him with two vouchers for complementary fishing at the lakes.
