Shepherds Way Trees

Category : Club News

Dear Club Members.

The club needs to carry out some work on the trees surrounding the lakes at Shepherds Way. We had a tree audit report done some time ago detailing the condition of every tree and what work is required. Are there any members who are experienced tree surgeons and/or know of someone who may be able to assist us? We appreciate there will be a cost for the work but we would prefer using a member rather than going outside if possible. If you are interested or know of someone who will be able to give us a very competitive rate, please contact Paul Hutton (Secretary) on 07802 304312 or pwhutton@btinternet.com.  Thank you.

We are looking for a club treasurer and are hoping there may be a BADAC member who has the necessary book keeping experience and would like to get more involved in the running of the club. You would be required to keep track of incoming and outgoing funds, maintain a simple balance sheet, process membership payments and issue passes. You will be entitled to a Hon fee plus payment of expenses for travel on club business, phone/broadband use and stationary. You will be supported by the club chairman and secretary and will be required to attend six club committee meetings per year. The role would be ideal for a member who has run a small business and/or has some finance knowledge and has a little free time and enthusiasm to offer to the club.

If you are interested and would like to know more please contact Rick Dolan (Chairman) or Paul Hutton (Secretary).

Help Required

Category : Club News

The following message was received by the Club over the Weekend.

“As I’m sure you’re aware earlier this year B.A.D.A.C and the Fishing Fraternity in general lost a long standing member when Mr George Favell passed.

As a mark of respect and remembrance another B.A.D.A.C member did, at his own expense, have made a Brass Plaque (similar to others installed at Shepherds Way – see attachment) which he duly fixed to a tree directly adjacent to Peg 6 Shepherds Way. This being “virtually” the only swim George could manage to get to due to his lack of mobility. For whatever reason and certainly by persons unknown, this plaque has been removed.

It has been suggested that it was stolen because the thief thinks it’s actually made of “Brass”

If you know of anyone who may have removed this Plaque or know of its whereabouts please return it to the club ASAP. This type of behaviour is not what we expect as a club.

Thank you
