GENERAL

From Mon 15th To Wed 17th Aug, Linear will be hosting a "Fish with the Stars" charity event for the MNDA (Motor Neurone Disease Association) to be held on both the Brasenose Lakes. We already have promises from over thirty of the top carp angling names in the country to take part in this August event. Just some of the names already booked in are Lee Jackson, Bryan Jarrett, The O’Connors, The Don, Tim Paisley, Iain Macmillan, Chilly, Ian Russell, Nigel Sharpe and Jerry Hammond.

As a guideline we will be happy with a £300 donation to fish the event but will be prepared to consider sums lower than this. The donation will need to be paid in advance and bookings will be taken on a first come first served basis. In addition to taking part in the event anyone paying the guideline price of £300 will receive a 48 hour voucher, worth up to £52 to fish Linear's day ticket waters at any time in the next year. The donation will include fishing with a well known angler for the event, food each day in the way of a BBQ/Hog Roast on the Monday and Tuesday evening and a BBQ breakfast on the Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. This is not a competition but more a social event and anglers taking part can negotiate moving around with different stars over the three days – with excellent chances of learning carp fishing techniques from the experts. All proceeds will be going to two branches of the MNDA and to raise even more money for this worthy charity we also plan to have an auction and sell raffle tickets.

Alvin Roy and his Jazz Band will be giving their time to play for us on the Tuesday evening and a selected number of guests will be invited along for this performance. We also plan have a few other well known faces, like John Wilson and Martin Bowler, just wandering round giving their advice during the event.

MOTOR NEURONE DISEASE
Some of you maybe unaware of this dreadful disease that kills at least five people a day in this country and for which, at present, there is no cure. If you wish to learn more about MND, information can be found on the MND Association website.

Anybody interested in taking part and helping raise money for this excellent cause should email Fishery Officer Chris Blunt at chris.blunt2005@btconnect.com

**Major Tree Work**

From 8am Tuesday 10th May there will be some quite substantial tree work being carried out down the shallow end of St. Johns Pool. This work will take approximately one week to complete and during this time swims 21-25 will be closed.

Can we please ask anyone fishing down St. Johns during this period to take extra care when approaching this area, the forestry chaps undertaking this work will have full authority in this area and once work has started you must listen to any instructions they give.

Thanks for reading this and sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Chris Blunt
Fishery Officer.

**Credit/Debit Cards**

You can pay by credit/debit card, on the bank-side at Linear. Bailiffs carry a mobile card machine which will accept most major cards. This is Linear's preferred method of payment, we still obviously accept cash but no longer accept cheques as a method of payment.

**MNDA Raffle Tickets**

WE have on offer raffle tickets in aid of the MNDA, these are available from all Linear bailiffs at £1 each. There are some great prizes on offer, including the top prize, a free years fishing, for one, on any Linear day ticket water (except Hunts).
