Disabled Access

As a club we are aware that we have a number of disabled, elderly and physically infirm members and we do our best to accommodate them.

 

To this end the club works to provide easy access swims at both of its venues. Notwithstanding, please remember that banks of ponds and rivers can be dangerous places and, despite the best efforts of the club, it is your responsibility to act in accordance with your safety.

 

Grove Pond

The club has obtained a full grant from the British Disabled Anglers Association for the supply and fit of 3 platforms for disabled anglers, these are in pegs 3, 4 & 5.

At the time of writing (25 May 2021) work is yet to be completed but when finished these swims will have direct access from the road to allow wheelchairs users and other disabled anglers to use the pegs.

If you are fishing any of these three swims (and all are occupied) then the club would be grateful if you would give the swim up if requested by a disabled angler.

 

Swift Ditch

Parking is available on the bank very close to the river, there are a few very well-tended swims on the lawn area downstream of the car park. Do not park your car on the lawn area – this is actually our landlord’s garden and he will not be pleased to have cars drive on it.
