It is greatly appreciated and here is a link to their website where anyone wishing to get involved can do so.  Its so nice seeing a group doing things like this to improve the environment for all and from the sounds of it have a bit of fun whilst doing so. i hope to be able to hook up with nick and his friends at one of the events in the not too distant future for pictures and a bit more on this check the news section

Once again wanted to apologise for the lack of updates recently thankfully I am now back and able to produce regular updates starting today check out the catches, matches and news pages for news from around the Club.

 



 

Sincere Apologies for the lack of updates this is due to a current family situation that has taken all my attention.

I will endeavour to update the website this weekend sorry to our regular visitors


 

URGENT URGENT URGENT AMMENDMENT!!!!!!
 
Due to a clerical error The AGM meeting has to take place 30 minutes earlier!  It will now start at 7.00PM not 7.30 sorry for any inconvenience caused!!!
 
 
AGM 17/03/16
 
The Annual General Meeting of WDNAC will take place On Thursday the 17th March 2016 at 7.00pm at the  Wellingborough Old Grammarians Association 46 Oxford St275x183
 
This is your chance as a member, to have your say about what is right, what you feel is wrong and what can be done to improve things. We can all sit on the bank and say this or that but Unless you speak out at the AGM nothing changes, if you care about your fishing, try and get along to the AGM and put your views accross.  If you dont tell us what you want from the WDNAC as a club then the commitee have to just get on as they think is best. Without your input as members nothing will change!
 




We Need your Help
 
At the AGM this year our Treasurer John Coleman will be retiring from that position. Firstly the club wishes to thank John for his invaluable assistance over the  years and wish him tight lines. This necessitates the search for a replacement, if you wish to volunteer or know someone that might be interested. Please contact  me via phone letter or email and we can arrange a time where you can meet up with the rest of the committee and see how we all get along.
 
 
 

UPDATE BRIDGE REPAIRS!!!
 
As is the way of things the projected timescale for the repairs and improvement of the Sluice gate bridge at Ringstead has changed. The project  has hit some delays the road to Barkers the river and backwater is currently closed to anglers whilst the workmen are fitting the pilons, so we respectfully ask all anglers ot observer this until it is safe or prudent to start reusing it!
It is thought currently that the works will continue for another 6 weeks. (this was best guess as of 04/02/16)

As stated previously there is a temporary pontoon bridge THIS IS NOT STRONG ENOUGH FOR CARS!

however there is a buggy that will transport your tackle to where you want to go!
img_1154
The scale of the work is much greater than initial thought and there will be a lot of re-landscaping needed after completion of the work

SAD PASSING
 
It is with deep regret I have to announce that Richard Blenkharn the previous Club Secretary  sadly passed away on Thursday 7th January.
As the new boy here I only spoke to Richard a few times on the phone, but he was nothing less than a gentleman. On behalf of the Committee and  Club members I would like to send our condolences  to his Wife Sarah and their family and friends As well as huge thanks for all the hard work he did for the club over the years.
 
MAY TIME HEAL YOUR SORROW
MAY FRIENDS EASE YOUR PAIN
MAY PEACE REPLACE HEARTACHES
AND MAY WARMEST WISHES REMAIN

BRIDGE REPAIRS!!!
 
As of the second week of January 2016 the bridge over the weir at the Ringstead fishery is going to be reinforced. Access to Barkers lake and the river will be a little more difficult for the 6 weeks it is expected to take to replace it.  However  a temporary footbridge will be erected and a quad bike and trailer will be available to move tackle to swims.
I will keep you posted as to the progress and or any changes to this timetable.
 
 
 
!!!!!The latest update is that from monday the 11th of January work
will commence the expected timescale is still 6 weeks.!!!!!!
