School Angling Club Newsletter
Our 2019/20 AGM & Presentation evening will be held on Thursday
26th March 2020 at the Post Office Club, 136 Greenford Road, Sudbury
Hill, Harrow HA1 3QL (situated behind the Rising Sun pub). AGM
will start at 8pm. As usual sandwiches and snacks will be laid
on and there is plenty of car parking available at the club. Motions
or proposals to be included on the AGM agenda and applications
for committee membership must be submitted to the Secretary before
5th March. After this date you will be able to view the proposals
and motions on the club website and notice boards.
This year you will again be able to renew your membership at the
AGM. Committee members will be at the club from 7pm to accept
your membership renewals. Please bring your membership renewal
form to the AGM along with a passport photo and SAE. This year
at the AGM we will be able to accept payment by credit or debit
card and if you wish to pay in cash please bring full (preferably
exact) payment. If you cannot attend the AGM but wish to pay by
card or cash, you will also be able to do so at the Fisherman’s
Cabin where you will be given a receipt. However, you will not
be able to leave your renewal form at the Cabin.
As you will see from your renewal form, we no longer accept renewal
payment by cheque due to the amount of time and cost administering
these payments. We encourage all members to pay by bank transfer
or PayPal using the details provided on the renewal form. Alternatively,
you can pay by credit or debit card using the link on our website:
www.hsac.co.uk. Don’t forget to quote your name and membership
next season’s membership must be received before 31st March.
Please provide your mobile phone number and/or email address as
we intend to use these to contact members with important club
announcements, eg: lake closure and work parties.
This year we have again frozen membership subscriptions, but we
have increased the refund available to senior members for work
party attendance. If you attend two work parties, you can claim
back £25, only payable after completion of second work party.
member and Website administrator needed
Danny McGahey is stepping down from the committee due to family
commitments. Thank you to Danny for his work on the committee.
We are also looking for someone to administer our website to ensure
it is updated promptly and remains user friendly. If you are interested
in either job, please let us know.
John Wood is
stepping down as chairman but will stay on the committee as club
bailiff. As all our members know John has made an immense contribution
to the club, not only as chairman but also with all the work he
puts in maintaining the lake. Without John’s work the lake
would be full of snags and have no fishable swims ! We should
all be grateful to John for what he has done for the club and
be pleased that he has agreed to continue as bailiff and to carry
on looking after the lake for us.
Parties & Water Management
Work parties will be held on the following dates: Sundays 5th,
12th, 19th and 26th April. Times are 9am to 12.30pm. There is
a lot of work to do to maintain the lake as an attractive and
enjoyable place to fish, so please try to attend the work parties
and don’t forget senior members can receive a £25
refund on their subscription.
During this winter we stocked 250lb of bream (averaging 1lb).
forget the Harrow season ends on 14th March
to see you at the AGM on 26th March
first family fishing match was a great success with 13 families
fishing, the match was won with 21lb by young Morgan, Second was
