Kevin Ford's 2nd memorial match is planned for Saturday 21st Ocotber and will be fished on the lakes at Barford.  Last year thanks to everyone who attended and other donations we raised money for a defibrillator for the fishery which is held in the Tackle shop.

This year we’d like to raise money in his memory to help the EACH Quidenham Children's Hospice 'The Nook' appeal and also for the Clare school.  Both do awesome work wihtin the local commuunity.

The draw is at 9am and the cafe will be open form 8am.  All profits from the cafe and all the peg fees will go towards the fund.  Tracie and her Mum are going to be making some cakes for afterwards.  

We'd like to hold a raffle - so any raffle prize donations are apprecited and welcomed.        

 Tickets are £20 with an optional £5 super pool.  For further information please click here.

Personal best for Sam

Sam Mixer (age 14) and his brother have been coming down to Barford throughout the summer hols and on the last weekend before school starts again Sam manages to get a 20! 20lb 10oz. 

His first cast on the Pleasure Lake this morning and only 5 minutes of fishing before he beat his P.B mirror by over 6lb.

Sam turned up at the lake to see fish fizzing about 10 yards out in peg… . He decide to use a bright strawberry boilie, hair rigged to a size 12 hook on 10lb line and flick it bang on where the carp were feeding. 5 minutes later…
