WORK PARTY UPDATE
The new bridge at the back of North House Lake has now been completed, painted white so it’s easier to see at night and wide enough for maintenance equipment to get over.
The coaching at Slapton was again a successful event despite the rain. Braving the rain, 16 children were brought along by their parents and grandparents, coming from far & wide. One family came from Ruislip Near Harrow. A grandmother made a weekend of it by staying with her son having come from Wigan, just to see her two grandsons fishing. The two boys didn't disappoint, catching 52 & 40 fish making a total of 92 between them. Something of a record! All children caught fish in good numbers. One fish, thought to be a small carp, took off stretching the whip elastic to limits beyond that which was intended before shedding the hook. Thank you to the coaches Mark, Jake, Dennis, Les & Miles, and helpers David M, Bob & David F who gave up their time making the day a great success. Thank you to Les of the Tackle Shed Barton Mill who was not only one of the coaches, but also supplied the bait #SupportYourLocalTackleShop
