On-going work

Bailiffs & volunteers are always out & about, given up there spare time to try and keep the river accessible for all anglers that visit the river.

If you have time and want to take part in this, have a look here.

Over the weekend we have made a considerable effort to improve some of the access around the river cutting paths through the undergrowth to access some of the runs.

We have a bit more to do but so far it is looking good.

Thanks to the bailiffs and volunteers for their hard work.

Please remember we are voluntary organisation.
