Covid has meant less people on the river and accordingly less riverbank volunteers managing access to the river and tree management. A recent walk along our waters has shown that we do need to spend a signiﬁcant time to keep our waters ﬁsh-able and our riverbank access routes safe.
Much of this work has been taken on by committee members and particularly Neil Spencer as river warden (ably helped by Simon King and Ian Reed). Neil has signalled that, after several years of untiring commitment, he wishes to do less maintenance and planning work in the coming season. This put the club in a quandary.
We need your help to maintain the river but also to help organise the bank days, riverside seminars and the continuing engagement with landowners and conservation/ﬁshing experts.
Much of these tasks are taken on by existing committee members but two or three additional volunteers to work on river and environmental improvements would be of huge assistance to all of us.
If you would like to join the committee or wish to volunteer for a few hours each month then please contact Gordon at hello@tawﬁshingclub.org.
