Ribchester and District Angling Club
Covid 19 (Coronavirus) Updates Sunderland Hall (26th May 2020) Members   are   requested   only   to   go   to   Sunderland   Hall   if   they   are   actually   fishing.   Members   are   asked   to   refrain   from   non-angling   visits just as just going for a walk, or to pre-bait or to do a recce. Sunderland Hall (16th May 2020) The   owners   of   Sunderland   Hall   have   requested   that   all   anglers   wear   gloves   or   otherwise   disinfect   their   hands   when   opening   and   closing the four gates in place between the car park and the fishing. Fishing - General (12th May 2020) With effect from Wednesday the 13th May all RADAC waters will be re-opened to fishing. In   doing   so   you   must   continue   to   respect   the   Government’s   rules   on   social   distancing.   The   Government’s   guidance   is   ‘Stay   Alert   –   Control The   Virus   –   Save   lives’   and   you   should   act   in   accord   with   this   guidance   when   out   fishing.   In   particular   you   should   ‘Stay   Alert’   to   situations which   could   place   you   or   others   in   danger   from   the   Covid   19   virus.      The   Angling   Trust   have   issued   guidance   which   is   available   here.   Please also   be   aware   that   in   general   the   country   is   still   in   lock   down   so   you   should   not   behave   in   any   way   that   would   attract   unfavourable   public attention.    Where    our    fishing    is    at    a    commercial    venue,    such    as    Barnsfold    or    Woodfold    you    must    observe    the    social    distancing requirements set out by their proprietors. Where   possible   the   Club   will   be   in   contact   with   all   of   our   riparian   owners   to   advise   them   that   angling   has   been   allowed   to   start   again.   You should,   however,   be   aware   that   when   you   go   fishing   you   will   be   entering   farmyards   and   other   properties.   The   residents   of   these properties may have concerns about coming into contact with strangers during the pandemic and you should respect that concern. The   Prime   Minister’s   statement   on   the   10th   May   made   it   clear   that,   if   the   infection   rate   for   the   Covid   19   virus   increases,   the   Government could   reimpose   restrictions.   This   might   mean   that   angling   is   banned   again.   You   should   therefore   keep   in   touch   with   the   Club’s   web   site and also with the Angling Trust’s site each time you plan to go fishing. Please remember that the virus has not gone away; it is still in our communities and we all need to act accordingly. We wish you safe fishing!
