The underlying financial position of the club remains sound and the club has run with a small profit (<£500.00) for the past year. Finances are therefore just about balanced.
As previously discussed membership levels are key to the future of the club. The Secretary has mentioned that membership numbers could be higher and this year we saw a drop from 190 to 182 full adult members.
With the inevitable rise in rental costs (c.2%) and overheads (insurance, hatchery donations, expenses) the Club will increase 2016 subscription prices by a small amount (£2.00p) for adults/seniors. We have managed to keep all other subscriptions at current levels.
Despite this minimal increase the costs are still highly competitive with game fishing costs elsewhere in the county and wider afield.
Could I remind all members that they should apply directly to me for their 2016 membership as soon as possible; ensuring they enclose;
