Members to note that there will be a meeting next month 14th October so anyone who wishes to make a proposal must do so in readiness for the AGM in December 9th
FDAC Monthly meetings will recommence on the second Thursday in September 2021.
Bi-Monthly club meetings are held every second Thursday of the month at the All Saints Catholic Club, Dean Road, Ferryhill, DL17 8ET. Starting at 8pm Prompt.
It seems some people have had issues renewing the club membership online with the membership form not proceeding to the Pay Pal page when submitted or the form has remained on the green application form page.
The system is regularly tested by the web admin and is in working order. If you are not forwarded to the Pay Pal page it is probably something to do with the security settings on your device, especially if using Apple devices.
If the form remains on the application form page please check you have filled the form in correctly, there will be errors shown in red. Correct these and then resubmit.
After a U turn from the Government Club waters are still open for fishing, but subject to social distancing rules etc.

I have received a letter from the Management Team who look after the business interests of Whitworth Hall Hotel and Deer Park. They have given notice to terminate FDAC lease on Shafto's Pond and stipulated that it is not anything that our Club has done or our Members, but that they are looking to the future of their business and have other plans in the pipeline. This means that our Members can no longer fish the pond nor can tickets be purchased from any outlet associated with FDAC. The Whitworth management team are aware that the fish in the pond belong to FDAC and that at a suitable date when this current Covid-19 crisis is over we can have the pond netted and the fish taken elsewhere. The Club Committee will be looking at alternative venues to lease or perhaps purchase and as soon as possible you our Members will be notified. In the meantime please do not go fishing to Shafto's or anywhere else until it is safe to do so. The quicker people heed the advice given by the Government the quicker our lives will return to what we are used to. In the meantime I want you to remain safe and continue to give your support to all the Keyworkers who are working tirelessly to keep the country running and the British public safe.
Owen Watret (FDAC Secretary)
