Terms and Conditions of Membership.
By accepting these terms and conditions of membership you and all linked members agree to abide by the Club Rules laid out in the Club Rules section on our website and in the supplied membership book. These Club Rules form part of your contract with the Club.
You are entitled to enjoy the unlimited use of the club’s venues and facilities during the term of your membership. Whilst we work hard to retain the fishing rights on all our waters certain leases/contracts and agreements occasionally renew throughout an existing membership year therefore it is possible that any venue or part thereof may be withdrawn at short notice. No Refunds will be given in the unlikely event this happens.
We may from time to time need to introduce short term by-laws to control or prevent environmental emergencies, and these may lead to water closures, temporary bait restrictions, etc. Members are reminded to check for any temporary notices at the water that they intend to fish.
Your membership is personal to you and you cannot transfer it to or loan it to another person. You must not lend your membership book to another person. All Membership books must contain an up to date photograph. If another person uses your membership book, we have the right to cancel your membership.
We are a family club and, as such, we welcome junior members. However, junior members have a responsibility to behave reasonably.
Junior members are not permitted to fish during the hours of darkness, unless they are accompanied by a member over the age of eighteen, this member will be responsible for the safety and activities of the Junior member.
We reserve the right to cancel your membership with immediate effect under (but not limited to) the following circumstances:
Verbal or physical abuse, or intimidation of bailiffs or other club officials by you.
Verbal or physical abuse, or intimidation of other members.
Wilful Damage to any club or landowners property or equipment.
Breaking any rule considered as gross misconduct e.g. leaving litter
Repeatedly ignoring or breaking any of the Club Rules.
If, with your knowledge or permission, another person uses your membership book.
If for any other reason we believe that it is not in the Club’s interests to allow the continued membership of you or your linked members.
If we cancel your membership for any of the reasons described above, you will not receive any refund of membership fees. We will also not accept any future applications you make for membership.

The law came into force in the year 2013 and applies to all UK based transactions where the consumer doesn’t meet the vendor. These regulations do not govern contracts between businesses.
