TICKS: The committee have been informed that there has been a number of ticks found in the Nutsey area.
Try to wear long trousers and long sleeve shirts at all times. Tuck your trousers into your socks and on exposed skin insect repellent.
If you have a tick remove asap – do not just pull it off, cover with Petroleum jelly or remove by turning it anti-clockwise this way all the hooks and head come free and are not left behind in your skin. TAKE CARE .

A polite reminder that anyone caught fishing without an unhooking mat, or net big enough to cope with the size of fish in the lake will be asked to leave. Please remember to ensure all nets are totally dry before use. Thanks.
