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.

Club’s Insurance.

Category : Club News

Barnet and District Angling Club

Membership number: 63421

We are writing to all Angling Trust member clubs with important information about your club’s insurance.

We have been advised by Jelf Insurance Brokers that the cover provided under the Sportscover Sports Liability Policy in as far as it applies to individual members of Angling Trust member clubs and syndicates, covers your members only when they are engaged in activities connected with the member club or syndicate. This limitation is specifically referred to in clause 15.2 on page 5 of the Sports Liability policy document.

We would respectfully ask that your club committee or syndicate leader takes action to ensure that your members are aware of this limitation to the cover. Individual anglers who wish to ensure that they have the benefit of public liability insurance for all their angling activities worldwide, whether connected with a member club or not, can join the Angling Trust as an individual member and receive this cover as an automatic benefit of membership.

We will be writing to you again soon to introduce an exciting new initiative to help us grow Angling Trust individual membership and benefit you, our member clubs, as part of that recruitment process. We also expect to be in touch with news of a great new membership benefit for individual members.

We’ve also been addressing the new Data Protection regulations (GDPR) coming into force in May 2018 and we’ll be writing to all member clubs with advice to help you make sure you can be compliant with the new requirements.

We’ll be sending these communications to all clubs through the post, so please make sure we have correct contact details for your club or syndicate and let us know promptly if any changes are required.

Floating Islands

Category : Club News

Floating Islands at Shepherds Way

If you visit Shepherds Way, you will see that the Club has introduced 2 floating Islands. These have been supplied by the Environment Agency at no cost to the Club whatsoever and our thanks must be passed on to (Rob Pearson EA Officer) and his team for their assistance in getting them onto the lake.

The reason for introducing them is to allow some refuge for fish against predatation from Cormorant’s.   Many of you will be aware that we have applied for a licence to cull and by introducing these we hope to strengthen our application to Natural England, especially as the problem is still ongoing and we are losing fish.   The Islands have a cage underneath them but it does not go to the lake bed and this allows larger fish access from underneath and smaller fish through the wires.  They are anchored to the bottom via two ropes with heavy weights attached and have coconut matting with grass and aquatic seed that will hopefully grow up enhancing their appearance, the chicken wire is to prevent birds nesting.

We strongly recommend that you do not cast directly to the islands as you are likely to get snagged.

We would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
