Neigh Bridge Country Park Fencing Proposal Meeting

Neigh Bridge Country Park Fencing Proposal Meeting
Thursday 4th February
Somerford Keynes Village Hall, GL7 6DS
8.30 to 9.30pm
THIS MEETING IS FOR MEMBERS ONLY AND CLUB BOOKS MUST BE PRESENTED ON ENTRY

This is an Informative meeting and a second opportunity for members to discuss and review the proposal of fencing Neigh Bridge Country Park. There will be no votes at this meeting, solely an opportunity to discuss the progress to date and give you another opportunity for all members to view proposed plans of this complex.

The club have come a long way in the last three or four years, working extensively with the CWPT along with a number of other parties to try and find the best way to protect this iconic and unique water.

Following the disappointing attendance of our first meeting at the end of last year, we can’t stress enough how important it is that members attend this meeting. This is your chance to see the progression to date and discuss with us what we are trying to achieve in protecting this water.

Thamesmead complex flood warning

We would like to make members aware of the increasing water levels on the Thamesmead and Manor complex, advising all to take care whilst visiting and fishing these venues. All lakes are holding a large volume of water at the moment, Manor and C lake being the most flooded, and with the river being close to bursting point it wont take much to find yourself in some difficulty.

Our bailiffs have visited the complex and advised the pontoon at manor is currently underwater along with the roller/plough swim being also very flooded, in which a member had a very timely reminder of the dangers a few years back where a couple of anglers had to come to his rescue in the middle of the night!

If you do plan to visit these lakes please could we ask for you to check the weather before and whilst fishing, along with being vigilant on any rising water levels.
