My name is Sarah Collins and I am pleased to have joined the committee in the position of Junior Liaison Officer.
I have wanted to get more involved with the club so hopefully you have seen me at various events throughout the last few seasons. My favourite was the family fun day. It was nice to see families taking time away from their phones and spending time in nature, and obviously catching fish! I even had a coaching session ( even if it was my husband Kris Collins) which is something the club offers to all members. Please contact the club or myself for more information regarding this.
I am also in the process of writing up a questionnaire which you will receive shortly. This will be to obtain feedback and any ideas as to what the juniors want going forward. i would love to connect with the mums & dads of our younger members, I am your voice so please contact me with any concerns or suggestions you may have,
I really want to progress the junior part of the club going forward and have already received some bookings for the junior open on the 23rd July, this is really positive to see.
So looking ahead for this season, we have; as i said the Junior Open scheduled for 23rd July and this event is open to members & non members aged from 8 to 16 years and it's FREE!.
This event will be in 2 sections (8-12 & 13-16yrs) on Nyewood ponds, all competitors must have an adult in attendance at all times.
