A reminder once again of the EA Hotline number should you suspect people are stealing fish from any of our waters 0800807060. The more calls that are received about possible incidents the more likely the EA are to increase patrols in the area concerned.

The Club have been kindly informed by the contractors that there will be road closures to install a new Gas Infrastructure main along the Fordfield Road, Flitwick. This passes our entrance to Beckerings Reservoir. We have been informed a full Diversionary route will be implemented, which will be via the A507 with works due to start 06-08-12. It is the intention that access will be granted at all times via the Millbrook end or the Flitwick end but, may change on a daily basis due to the nature of the works. As we find out more information, we will keep you informed. Temporary traffic lights in place and operational, some form of works have already started just after the cross roads.

Last season we received many of your fishing holiday snaps so please send them in again this year!
