How To Help Us

Much of the running of the Club is done on a voluntary basis. This page describes how you can help the Club by getting involved

Management Committee

The Club is run by a voluntary 16 person management committee. The management committee meets once a month throughout the year. It deals with a wide ranges of issues inluding:

  • Members’ concerns and issues
  • Health and safety
  • Environment and water quality
  • Staff management and Lake Operations
  • Grounds and building maintenance
  • Membership renewals and communication
  • Fish stock and health
  • Club finance
  • Constitution, Land and legal issues
  • Event organisation and wider usage.
  • Development of the Club
  • Club historic archives

Individual committee members generally take responsibility for one or more areas of the running of the Club. This means that a committee member does not just attend meetings but carries out crucial functions for the Club.

Committee members are elected at the Club’s Annual General Meeting each year at the end of November. If you are a Club member and are interested in standing for the committee please speak to an existing committee member at the Lake or email us via the Contact page to express an interest.

Leave a legacy to the Lake

There are always projects at the Lake that we cannot implements due to lack of funds. In the past some of these projects have been achieved because we have received a legacy from a member.  This is a great way to show your appreciation of Lake. See our Legacy  page for more information.

Working Parties

Much of the grounds maintenance and improvement is carried out by voluntary working parties in the spring and autumn. See the events page for details of working party dates. There are also ad-hoc working parties when there is something specific to do. If you would like to get involved email us via the Contact page.

Membership Team

Membership renewal processing is carried out by a voluntary team that meets at the Lake during February, March and April. Times and dates depend on the amount of renewals received so are arranged on an ad-hoc basis. It is quite a sociable activity with time for a cup of tea, biscuits and a chat. It is however very important to the Club in that the membership renewal process is a mammoth task and to do it with volunteers allows the Club to keep subscription rates as low as possible.  If you would like to get involved email us via the Contact page.

Angling Section

The Angling section is run by the Angling Operation subcommittee which includes the voluntary team of angling bailiffs. Ad-hoc working parties are carried out throughout the year and include keeping the lilies at the fishing end in check. If you would like to get involved please speak to one of the angling bailiffs or contact us  via the Contact page.
