Southwold Angling Society reports success at AGM
PUBLISHED: 16:19 19 April 2012
Chairman Barry Reid welcomed around 50 members and guests of the Southwold & District Freshwater Angling Preservation Society to the 40th Annual General Meeting.
He reported that the previous 12 months had been a challenge for the Society but that thanks to the determination of the committee and members, significant progress had been made in installing otter proof fencing around three of the four lakes on the Reydon complex.
Last year’s AGM saw the introduction of a special levy and this combined with good financial management, additional donations and interest free loans from members had enabled the project to proceed more quickly than expected and for the restocking programme to begin.
A proposal to introduce a further levy to support the completion of the work to the final lake received unanimous support as did a small increase in subscriptions.
All proposals were agreed by those present.
Members are reminded that subscriptions are now due and must be paid by midnight on May 15.
