The link at the side of the page will take you there, Sandra at Anglers Lodge would value your feedback.

Annual General Meeting

The AGM took place this evening at The Prospect Club Willington. The results of debates will be published by the Secretary in due course. Some highlights follow

Mr Ray Lumb stepped down as Chairman of the Club. W&DAC wishes to thank Ray for many years of dedicated service to the club, his association with W&DAC goes back decades, as far as the 60s, possibly even the 50s if anyone can remember that far back. Thank you Ray and all best wishes from all of us.

The vacant Chairman’s position will be filled by Eric Clegg, formerly club Secretary. A number of resulting changes to the officials and committee will be published by the secretary in the near future.

The presentation of trophies (sponsored by Anglers Lodge at Jubilee Lakes) took place tonight. The club is very grateful to Sandra at Anglers Lodge at Jubilee Lakes for this sponsorship.

The prize of a Hardy Ultralite CLR reel provided by Anglers Lodge at Jubilee Lakes was won by junior member B Haslam, winner of the T.O Mounter Memorial Trophy. He was not able to attend the meeting but will no doubt be thrilled when he learns of this fantastic prize.
