Important


25th September - Mick Barwood

Please can I remind all members that you MUST display your CPS Car Park badge in your vehicle. It has always been a Society Rule and is just as important as taking your Membership Card and Rod Licence with you.

Furthermore, with security on our waters at high alert at the moment, it has never been more important to do so to help identify unauthorised visitors, so it will not be tolerated by our Bailiffs to accept that you have forgotten it. It will reported back.

Thank you for your kind co-operation and trust you are all able to help us protect our waters and welcome member feedback of such vehicles without these badges as Shaun as communicated earlier. Bailiffs can not cover all waters 24/7, we all need to be vigilant.


25th September - Shaun Vandersteen

Hi all 

If anyone see's any suspicious activity on any CPS waters please contact us either by phone or through this website's contact us page asap. 

Please also report it to the Police and the EA incident line number which is 0800 807060 and get a incident reference number. 

A longline for poaching was found today on the Glebe and we need everyone's help to try and catch the culprits and to put a stop to this.

Also, if everyone could let us know of any vehicle parked in our car parks or outside our entrance gates that have no CPS car park badge displayed please.

Please take a note of the make, model and reg number. It's colour and the date and time parked there. If possible a picture too.

Many thanks 

Tight lines and stay safe

Round 1 - Langham 3 - 25th October
Round2 - Glebe Farm - 22nd November


23rd September - Shaun Vandersteen

There has been new fences and gates put up very recently at Stratford Mill and Black Barn stretch by the Landowner. Stratford Mill gate is the same CPS code to enter, however, the wooden bridge gate near the Wild Fowl lake has the Landlords padlock with a different code. We will communicate here once this has been authorised to be changed to our CPS code. In the meantime, if anyone wishes to fish over the bridge and upstream before the code is changed then please use our website contact page to advise us of the date you wish to fish, your membership number and full name.
We hope to get this padlock code changed asap and am very sorry to anyone who has already been caught out since this gate went up.

Please be advised that Langham Ponds complex has been able to get a relaxation on DAY fishing only. No need to book on but we still need to know who has been fishing everyday for Track and Trace purposes.
So instead, you now need to text me on 07881 374412 with the time you arrived and the time when you left along with your name and membership number.
If you can't text then telephone 01206 548595 between 0900 - 1700hrs leaving the same information.
Failure to do so jepodises us all so please make sure you adhere to these new rules otherwise the committee will have no alternative to take some unpopular action.  Night fishing still remains a strict book on system direct with me before you attend. Thanks for your cooperation.


28th August - Cliff Sturley

Ladies and Junior Girls, the Barwood Ladies competition on the 13th September is fast approaching. Please contact Dave Pilsworth to register your place.

Please can I ask all Members to not touch any of our Crayfish Traps - Thank you
Also, it is extremely important for you to carry your Membership Card and a valid Rod Licence with you when fishing. There has been a significant step up of water patrols, not only by our own Bailiffs. Anyone found fishing without these on them will be asked to stop fishing and leave. If its the EA it could result in a severe fine, if you fail to later provide a valid Rod Licence.
Please respect such requests to leave without any confrontation, even though you may have genuinely forgot for some reason, but its only you that has caused this action to be taken, no-one else. 


17th August - Dave Pilsworth

Following the Committee meeting yesterday, the Guidelines and Notices document has been duly updated.

The main items were that:
Loose feed replaces ground bait and specific waters will now have restrictions detailed on the notice boards when entering on the amount one can use for each session.

50lb of fish per keep net considered best practice for all Members.

Unhooking Mats are to be used to protect our large fish. So it is encouraged that Members carry one in case they catch something bigger than they are fishing for.

Please, if any Member has a query or question on anything, do not hesitate to use the 'Contact Us' page on our website. It will be forwarded to the relevant Committee Member to respond.
