Whilst the underlying financial position of the club remains sound
we have found ourselves under increasing financial pressure over
the last few seasons.
Since 2011 we have seen a drop in membership of 17.5%; from
224 full-paying adult members to just 185 in 2013; this resulted in
a real income loss of over £3000.00 during the same period.
Against this, the cost of our fishing has risen, both by the effects
of inflation (>8% over 3 years), through increased rentals on long
term leases and acquisition of additional water. Poor interest rates
and inflation are also effectively eroding our capital balance and it
is not being increased.
Because of this, and as stated at the AGM in February 2013, the
Committee have taken the position that it is necessary to ensure
that subscription rates must necessarily rise to cover our costs,
thereby ensuring the club remains financially sustainable in the
Subscription rates for 2014 will therefore rise broadly in line with
inflation. The Committee has agreed to increase fees to £87.50 pa
for adults and to £82.50 for our senior members, an increase of
£2.50 pa. Junior member, day/weekly ticket fees and enrolment
fees will however remain frozen once again.
Could I remind all members that they should apply directly to me
for their 2014 memberships as soon as possible; ensuring they
