We are now officially closed for the Festive Season and will re open on Wednesday 4th January 2012.

Brian Shaw has left the building for the last time and will be sorely missed; (he is allowed to come back and visit us!). Thanks for everything, Brian and good luck in Speyside. We have virtually completed the office move with just a bit of tidying up and re organising to finish. Over the holiday period our phone and broadband line should be moved but it is doubtful that we will have full service when we return so please be patient as we will only be able to check emails from home and will only have one telephone line in operation (01292 525142) for a few days at least. I hope our answering service will remain operational throughout and I will check this periodically.

I will continue to update the blog if I find anything of interest to report.

Finally, we will be listing more ‘Tackle in the Attic’ items on ebay early in the New Year that were kindly donated by members. TIA has been a great boost to the Trust since it was launched so if you are clearing out unwanted fishing tackle (after Santa Clause brought you nice shiny new things), please think about donating them to the Trust. I’ll let everyone know when the items go live through this blog.

All that’s left for me to do now is wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
