Todays work party battled through some amazing showers to repair a bridge & stiles, along with new paths and clearing trees. The Club’s water is looking perfect for the opening day on Tuesday, huge thanks to all those who turned out over the winter months to help. Don’t forget to purchase your Environment Agency Rod …
We enjoyed even more sun today and a few more Members turned up to help install another batch of stiles. This was a lot more relaxed with plenty of fishing talk and watching rising fish to hatching olives & grannom amongst the stunning ranunculus!!!! The Chairman Bryan Sennett and the last stile of the day.
We achieved a lot today and thanks to all who turned out to build the stiles, move the fence and carry the materials. It was hard work, but there were no complaints on such a warm sunny day. Another work part start tomorrow at 9am Giffords Pool lay-by www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Dorchester
