This is to let everyone who knew Peter Shadick and would like to attend his funeral, it is on Monday 13th December. There will be a short committal service at Test Valley Crematorium (Ridge, Romsey) at 10.15am, followed by a celebration of Peter’s life at Lyndhurst Baptist Church at 12 midday. There will be refreshments in the adjoining hall afterwards. All are welcome at either or both services, and the refreshments afterwards. We, his family, would love to see you. Regards, Lynn Shadick

EMBLEY LAKE CATFISH – Please retain any catfish safely and contact any club officer for further instructions. Do not release back into the lake.


With the on-going low oxygen levels at Embley Lake there will be no further matches on the venue this season to avoid undue stress on the fish.
Unfortunately this means that the Bank Holiday pairs match will be cancelled so both Embley and Kings will be available for club members to fish (subject to Embley being open).
Sunday 18th August match originally scheduled for Embley will be moved to Kings Lake however the lake will not be closed and the early pegs will be available for pleasure anglers.
Thank you for your cooperation at this difficult time
Andrew Palmer
Match Secretary
