After the success of last year’s event, plans have been prepared to hold another Charity Dinner following the AGM on Tuesday 17th December 2019. We are again very fortunate to have been offered the tremendous facilities of Sunninghill Prep School (SPS) in Dorchester to host both the venue for the AGM and then a Dinner immediately following. This will be in support of Fishing For Schools.
Of course the AGM will be the preserve of DFC Members, but the Charity Dinner afterwards is to be opened up more widely to many and various fishing and sporting folk in our community including the Chalkstream Club. Numbers are restricted, so please don’t delay in booking your place.
Some further info for the DFC AGM and then the Dinner as follows:
DFC AGM at 6pm
Pre-dinner drinks at 7.30pm, followed by Dinner, menu as follows:
Starter Stilton and broccoli soup or pate
Main course Roast beef or goats cheese “en croute”

The Club is a private one, founded in 1877, of approximately sixty-four members and six Town Rod subscribers. The Club’s waters consist of about 12 miles of wild brown trout & grayling fishing in the main River Frome, River Cerne and River Piddle, together with attendant carriers and side streams. The waters extend both above and below the town of Dorchester and the Club employs a part-time keeper.

Angling’s representative body, the Angling Trust, has a web site for anglers to record sightings of cormorants, goosanders and mergansers throughout the UK: www.cormorantwatch.com The site is easy to use and will gather vital data to help persuade government of the need for action to protect fisheries.
Invasive plants and animals can carry diseases that kill fish, block waterways and banks, interfering with fishing. They can be small and hard to spot, so are easily spread on damp clothing and equipment.
Protect the environment and fishing you enjoy, by keeping your kit free of invasive plants and animals.
