Our insurers the Angling Trust have advised that fishing is now allowed (see https://anglingtrust.net/covid-19/) so the fishery is open.
Following yesterday's Committee Meeting we have agreed that as of 19 April logging on and off beats will revert to the entrance hall with all fish caught being recorded in the record books. The toilet and rod room will be open. The Bar and Cellar will remain closed for the time being. All other areas of the house are out of bounds to members.
We hope that from 14 May restrictions on the use of Springfield will be eased further, the Secretary will communicate with members on what is permitted nearer the date.
Fishing is subject to Members adhering to the lockdown restrictions currently in force.
Members should not expect the Club to provide specific advice on compliance with the current lock-down restrictions/guidelines. Members will have to form their own views as to what is an acceptable travel distance.

Much has been achieved over the last year in clearing vegetation from the walls of Springfield which will hopefully contribute to a reduction in the damp issues. Once the current lockdown measures are eased it is hoped we can conduct a more detailed internal survey to identify the reasons for damp in the upper stories.
Springfield now has a superb stove installed to warm your bones after a long days fishing. There have also been some updates to our soft furnishings. These great additions were made possible by several generous donations from our membership.
