THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT IS FROM THE WDAA WATER MANAGEMENT

Rookerypool---unfortunately WDAA has lost the fishing rights to
Rookery pool. This has been ongoing for a number of months,
however this week the lock was changed on the gate without
WDAA's knowledge. The WDAA was due for lease renewal
mid year 2018. Vale Royal Abbey received a counter offer
from an individual who was a friend of a member of the staff
at VRA, which included a number of other benefits including
tree surgery at a discounted rate. WDAA submitted a further
offer with a number of added benefits. Unfortunately VRA have
decided to offer the lease to the individual syndicate. This was
nothing to do with money.

IN EFFECT THIS MEANS WDAA MEMBERS NO LONGER HAVE ACCESS
TO FISH THE POOL, AN UN GENTLEMANLY WAY TO END
THE ASSOCIATIONS LEASE . THE ASSOCIATION IS SORRY FOR THE
MEMBERS THAT FREQUENTED THE POOL AND APOLOGISE FOR
THE LOSS, DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES MUCH BEYOND OUR CONTROL.

.....................................................

Please note that anglers fishing the dane, the footbridge at Kings lock
is currently closed and the only access to the Croxton stretch is via
Croxton lane only.
