FEBRUARY 2019

A small team of volunteers has worked tirelessly throughout the winter to complete the refurbishment of Packhorse at the Club’s Kingsbridge complex. The main focus of these works has been to improve ‘access for all’ which has seen the overgrown, narrow and muddy perimeter path cleared to a minimum width of 1.5m and top dressed with new stone.

Rotten platforms have been removed and replaced with either oversize more accessible wooden platforms or railway sleeper revetment. Additional work has included the remodelling of a number of swims to increase area, reduce gradient and improve drainage all of which will be welcome improvements for the night angler.

Long overdue repairs to the entrance track have also been completed. The large craters that potholed the entrance track have been filled with stone and compacted.

Thank you to all who have shared their river captures over the winter months - it's been fantastic to see. There's only two weeks left of the season so, conditions permitting, make sure you head out and have a bash!
