BRIAN CROWHURST

It is with deep regret I have to announce the sad passing of Club Chairman Brian Crowhurst. After a short but terrible illness, he sadly passed away on sunday morning. I wanted to take this opportunity to enlighten members of just what the club has lost and my feeble words will only go so far to illustrate a wonderful life devoted to fishing in general and this club in particular.

We live in a world where superlatives are used out of context and by that definition become devalued by there over-use. His works and words and deeds should be the measure of a man when I was a child legends were people Like Robert Falcon Scott, Neil Armstrong and Jackie Stewart.... being orange and or, on television should never qualify ...!

However I truly believe in the case of Brian Crowhurst we had a legend in our midst... A man who's love of fishing prompted him to devoting most of his life to making sure WDNAC was ahead of the game and with his forsight saw the future of fishing and how to make sure the club would thrive. At the recent AGM as a club we were lucky enough to be able to show him our gratitude for the 60 + years of service, a feat that I truly believe will never be surpassed or equalled.

At this time we wish to extend our sincerest condolences to his wife Shirley and family and take this opportunity to thank them for allowing us to have monopolised so much of his time! Finally in conclusion to everyone that knew him, his family, friends and associates and a club that will be poorer for his absence but richer for the shared memories of a life well lived in service of others.

The Fishermans Prayer

I pray that I may live to fish
Until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray:
When in the Lord's great landing net
And peacefully asleep
That in His mercy I be judged
Big enough to keep.

RIP Brian..... Tight Lines where-ever you find to fish!!!

NEWSFLASH!!!
31/01/17

 

Sadly once again we have had to close the gate to Barkers...
Ashley refered to some inconsiderate parking the other day snd this has led toi parts of the new track being impassible ... so for the foreseeable future the gate will remain closed. this weekends work party will be improving the car park by the Sluice gate (washing machine) so there are secure and relatively dry places to park!
 
 
Recent post on Facebook!!

Work Party Update: Sorry its a bit late this week but Saturday's time was spent at Ringstead. New platform style swims are being considered for Mill Cotton & the trial kit had arrived & was being drilled pre assembly for a test install. Digger & dumper work was too move more stone to Barkers to enlarge the first parking area. Unfortunately anglers are still parking on the grass even in the current state & cutting the ground up. Please be prepared to walk to your peg at present from a car parking area & use some common sense or we will have no choice but to unfortunately close the main gate to protect the ground until it dries out.  Also, the club won't be pulling any stuck cars off of grass verges. It is up to the angler to arrange for that without damaging the bank even more. If they choose to park on grass in a bog then they can get out of it as well. We will be charging for materials to repair any excessive rutting of the ground as there is no need for it. Hundreds of pounds in materials & hours of volunteers time have been spent repairing tracks & providing extra car parks to fish Barkers & the river & all we are asking of the anglers is to be respectful of this & maybe have to walk less than 50 yards to where they want to fish.

 

Please think of where you are parking...
