Closure of all KAPS waters


Dear Members,

With the current government measures in place and given the nature of this virus we have taken the difficult decision to close all KAPS waters with immediate effect. We are obviously monitoring the situation and will reopen when it is safe to do so. As a preservation society we have both a legal and moral obligation to all that we come into contact with to try and reduce the spread of the virus. Please take extra care of yourselves and be safe.

All of the trout members and approaching half of the coarse members have completed their renewal for the coming season. This renewal process will go ahead as normal at the prices announced in the last newsletter (link also below). Should the closure go on for a significant length of time we may well have to look at possible compensatory schemes at the end of the year for trout members and at the end of the 2020/21 season for coarse members. Such a scheme could be an extension of the current season or a reduced membership fee for the following year. We were hoping to circulate a KAPS newsletter this week but the printers are not now available and we will be limited to using the website. If you know members who are unlikely to be able to access the website please pass on the message about closure of the fishing venues.

Details of renewal process and current prices can be found here: Kingfisher News – March 2020
