The last of the field side swims on the Old Ballast Pit are due to be completed in the next fortnight. the old metal work will be removed and the areas dug out to match the other swims. Barley straw is on order ready for the inevitable algae blooms in the warmer weather. The last of the ribbons have been removed from the New Lagoon and the Society has been advised on a recent visit by the Angling Trust that we have done everything possible to deter Cormorants. More grass seeding will be carried out on the New Lagoon area and the new picnic benches will be oiled ready for placement. More swims are in line to be completed on Barden Lake and the Council continue to make a great job of the revetment work to the damaged banks. The Swans have turned up in numbers on Barden, with up to 30 birds on there last week but with two pairs now nesting, the juveniles have started to disperse. If anybody has anything they wish to be reported, please contact myself or the club Secretary via the website contacts.
