Two pieces of very positive news to share with you for the new season ahead.
1: We are now able to fish the East & West banks at Balcombe as well as the dam wall from the 1st April. Fishing from the North bank is still prohibited but this increased access is much appreciated. We also have permission to lay new pathway all the way down the East bank through the woods and widen the path at the field where it currently narrows down. We will also be restoring all swims down that bank.
2: We have signed an agreement with Southern Water that allows us to build a dedicated car park for our members at the Sloop stretch. The new car park will be off the lane to the treatment works alongside the canal and will greatly cut down the walk to the river as well as providing a long term resolution to our recent parking woes at this location.
It goes without saying that we now have a lot of work to do at both these locations so please try your best to make any work parties we schedule for these works. We will advise dates of these major work parties when ready on Facebook and via email.
An updated rule book to reflect these changes has been posted for download on our membership page but please remember the car park at the Sloop has not been built yet.
