Treasurer's Report 2013

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 long term. 

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 enclose

  • Completed and accurate catch return form for 2013 season 
  • Membership renewal form duly completed (including an email address where possible) 
  • Cheque for appropriate amount, including any donations 
  • Stamped addressed envelope 

The address to send it is Higher Trevartha Farm, Pengover, Liskeard, Cornwall PL14 3NJ.
