WORCESTER & DISTRICT UNITED ANGLERS' ASSOCIATION
Headquarters - Barbourne Ex-Service Mens Club
The Moors, Worester.
Will members please note that there is a Canoe Event schedulaed for the 12 JULY 2015 on the Birmingham to Worcester canal sections which is likely to cause severe disrution. To avoid would be prudent. This disruption may also extend to adjacent river venues.
TO ALL WDUAA ANGLERS.
We have received a letter from the Canal and Rivers Trust representing some of the residents of Rushton Court who’s flats and apartments back on to the Worcester & Birmingham canal between Bridge 2 (Mill Street) and Bridge 3 (Sidbury). They wished to raise their concerns over the number of anglers that appear to be urinating in the hedge row with no consideration for the properties and residents that live in them on the opposite side of the canal.
We politely request that all anglers representing the WDUAA please observe the comments and observe due consideration when answering a call of nature in such residential areas.
Many thanks for your co-operation.
Ray Ravenall - Chairman WDUAA.
It is with regret that we announce that as of 1st January 2019, the following waters will no longer be available to WDUAA members.
West Diglis - River Severn.
Barbourne Pool - As informed earlier this year, Barbourne A\C have elected to be the sole custodians of the pool which is a very disappointing situation for us all despite all our efforts to support the club.
West Diglis - Regrettably this venue has become non-viable for the Association due to the high rental cost, poor access to the venue and general lack of use by individual members and associated clubs resulting in poor peg conditions.
The Association are currently in discussions with various land owners to add a further pool to our portfolio. We are also in the early negotiation stages of the sale of our East Diglis land to enhance our finances and move the Association forward for the current needs of our members in securing a further stillwater venue.
My best regards to all our loyal members.
Ray Ravenall - Chairman
Please note: the annual BHF Worcester Hearty Walk will be taking place on Sunday the 7th April 2019.
Part of the walk will involve the river paths and consequently there may be more walkers than usual.
