                Gear Up for Working Parties

    As the current season closes now's the time to help repair and improve our fisheries...

    If you are a VAC member over 16 you are required to attend a working party (some exceptions apply) and get your membership card stamped before re-applying for next season - unless you opt to pay the work party levy!

    Some members have already been given a date for a work party. If so this will be stamped inside your membership card. Please, if possible, stick with the date given. If you cannot attend on that date or have not been given a date please read on...

    Below are the numbers of the VAC bailiffs. To attend a working party simply call the bailiff of your preferred venue to check on planned dates and to register. Please phone at sensible hours (6pm - 9pm is usually best).
