    Our River Great Ouse Biddenham venue will be closed for a workparty on Saturday 3rd October 2015. We will be taking down branches that are restricting swims as well as invasive rushes in front of some of the platforms. There is lots of work to do so all volunteers are very welcome. We will be starting at 9am so please come along bringing work gloves if you have them and a bow saw or similar would be useful.

  • icon fish 72Luton Angling Club are pleased to announce some very positive changes with the return of Life Members Dennis Hunt & John Morris to the Luton AC Board.
    Dennis was the club Treasurer & John was Secretary for almost 30 years combined and both bring with them a wealth of experience.
    Due to work commitments Fergal O’Kane has stepped down as Chairman and Dennis Hunt has taken over the role.
    Likewise Steve Sharp has stepped down as acting Secretary a role which he took on following the sudden departure of Ken Gates on health grounds earlier this year and John Morris has taken over that role.
    Fergal will now be Vice Chairman while former VC David Farmer concentrates on his excellent work as Fsheries Manager.
    All of the changes will of course be voted on at the next AGM on 17th March 2016 which all Luton AC members are encouraged to attend.

  • icon fish 72The Farmer at Beckerings has put pest control in the car park, under no circumstances should club members interfere with it.

  • icon fish 72Gary Edwards Has now taken over as Membership Secretary all membership enquiries should now be forwarded to him.

  • icon fish 72Luton Angling Club have given up the stretch of the river Ouse at the Black Cat.

    This is due to the board being unwilling to meet the rent increases suggested by Bedford Borough Council, and Bedford Borough Council’s unwillingness to accept our counter proposals that took into account the state of the track and the number of times our access was obstructed by pipes from the adjacent gravel workings.

  • icon fish 72Bob Irving
    It was with great sadness that the Club has recently learnt of the death of one of our life members, Bob Irving. Bob was awarded life membership some years ago in recognition of his contribution to the club, serving on the Committee for ten or so years in the 1990’s. Bob was a respected member of the Luton match group for over three decades, and in addition to his involvement with Luton Angling club was also a committee member of Blunham A/C Several senior members of the Club attended the funeral in Stopsley.
    Bob will be sorely missed by family and friends
