London Colney Update

Over the last year, the Trustees of the Club have worked hard, seeking the best possible solution to retain the fishing rights at Broad Colney Lakes. Since confirmation of the sale, we have had to take into account not only the current offer price, that we understand to be considerably in excess of the  £30,000 guide price, but also the ongoing upkeep of the surrounding land, along with the rebuilding of swims that have been removed by Herts & Middx Wildlife Trust.   This in itself is a massive task that we believe can only be achieved over a lengthy period of time with the help of grants from various outside providers, along with further assistance from a willing and supportive partner.

After taking all these factors into consideration we arranged meetings with London Colney Parish Council to see if they were willing to enter into a partnership with the Club.

The Parish Council passed a resolution at their last full meeting that they would submit a bid, working alongside of the Club, so they can continue with the fishing rights should the bid be successful   This proposal was later endorsed by the BADAC Committee at our last meeting

The submission is based on many and varying issues that make it unique in its presentation and hopefully has the strength to see it accepted.

We will of course keep you informed as events unfold.
