Work Parties

Work parties are organised by the Head Bailiff, or a nominated representative, from time to time on all TWAPS fisheries.

We welcome volunteers for work parties from the Membership. 

The work usually involves pruning trees, opening up swims and pathways, reed cutting and other small jobs as deemed necessary.

Work parties normally last for approximately 4 hours, but volunteers may not be able to give that amount of time, which is fine.

Volunteers must wear suitable clothing, including footwear (boots rather than trainers) and provide their own gloves.  Arms and legs should be covered.

Tools and other protective equipment will be provided as necessary.

Work parties are carried out in accordance with Government guidelines, we maintain social distancing, provide all PPE as necessary and wear face masks if appropriate to do so.

Please note, if you attend a work party, you do so at your own risk. TWAPS cannot be held responsible for any injury or loss due to any underlying health conditions.

The Head Bailiff is now taking names and phone numbers from any interested Members that want to help at work parties.

If you are interested, please text only your name and phone number Gary Bushell,  Head Bailiff.  His number is on your membership card.

He will call on members to help as needed.

Most work parties will be on Sunday mornings with some mid week.

Upcoming Work Parties:

As of Sunday 31st October 2021 the Inn On The Lake will be closed for fishing every Sunday morning from 8am until 1pm until further notice for work parties to carry out maintenance work on the fishery.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Gary Bushell, Head Bailiff
