AGM 2017

Full minutes of this years AGM will be published in the members only section in the coming weeks.

Key points:

The following members of the committee have stepped down from their duties: John Shrimpton, Paul Bundock and John Redman. We would like to thank them for the time and effort they have given towards the progess the club has made in recent years.

As a result the committee has made the following appointments as a temporary measure which will be voted on at the next AGM: Club Secretary and Treasurer: Dave Boulding. Membership Secretary: Pete Overington.

Rule change: The use of Bloodworm and Joker is banned in all matches on club waters from June 1st 2017. Proposed by Mick Roberts, seconded by George Howson. Carried unanimously.


Committee Vacancies

As a result of the above resignations, we are currently looking for new MVAS Committee members. If you are passionate about fishing and MVAS we would be keen to hear from you. Please contact the Club Secretary (details on committee page) telling us what you could bring to the committee, including any relevant knowledge and experience, and what you hope to gain from being on the committee.

We are looking for people to work together in a positive way to sustain and build on the great work achieved by the club to date. In particular, we would welcome those who can help the club move forward as a diverse organisation that could help bring new participants into fishing with MVAS.

You will need to be contactable by phone, and if possible by email/MVAS Committee Social Media group, be willing to attend monthly Committee meetings, and other meetings/activities as needed.
