Coronavirus (COVID-19) update
Updated 12 May 2020
Keeping our visitors, staff and volunteers safe is our top priority. We’ve assessed the latest advice from the Government on Coronavirus and decided that our fisheries can reopen under the guidance.
It’s essential that social distancing rules are followed at all times. We’ll only be able to keep our fisheries open if anglers follow this advice.
Our angling venues will reopen on Wednesday 13 May for existing 2019-20 season permit holders, except Walton’s Walk which reopens on Tuesday 16 June.
Only one angler can fish at each swim, except for double swims where two are allowed, but you must keep two metres apart at all times.
All gravel pit permit holders will be able to fish up until midnight on 1 August on their existing permits. The new 2020-21 season will start on 2 August and run until 15 June 2021.
In July, we’ll be contacting existing members with the automatic renewal option as usual. The waiting lists will be opened if allocation of existing membership allows, or there are places available. Application forms for Non-Waiting List fisheries will become available in time for the new season starting 2 August.
Please stay safe, respect social distancing and act responsibly at all times.
