''OUR PREMIER FISHERY''

Insert body text here ...

 

Head Bailiff: Roy Mills

Being retired and resident of Knutsford combined with his willingness to maintain the clubs fisheries made Roy an easy choice when it was decided to re-appoint him as Head Bailiff.  Whilst doing the job previously he became a regular face around the club fisheries  with him being someone always willing to stop for a chat or provide advice. As before we know at every opportunity he will visit the fisheries to check those fishing are valid members and are in possession of an EA licence.  Just as important is to make sure members are abiding by the rules and not flouting them as has happened in the past. After work parties he will as before spend time making sure anything is removed so the fishery remains in the condition members expect to find them. Now Roy is head bailiff again the club is keen for the bailiff team at sometime in the near future to produce a monthly report that we intend using to improve facilities for members. We expect Roy when he has had time to settle back into the job to arrange the other bailiffs so they can work more effectively together.  This is  more relevant now Heron Pool is open that will require a similar level of management as other club fisheries.

 

Bailiff: Ben Gunshon

Ben has not been a member of the club for long but in the short time he has his willingness to get involved and take an interest in everything going on in club has not gone unnoticed that officials have welcomed. He might be one of our younger members but his enthusiasm to get stuck in is very encouraging.  He can also do a bit of fishing having caught many specimen fish whilst doing all-nighters on Green Lane with Kevin our previous head bailiff.  The clubs committee welcome him as a bailiff and look forward to working closely in the important role he has agreed to take on board in the future.  

 

Bailiff: Alan Lord:

Alan has been an active member since joining the club and regular visitor to our Green Lane fishery were he enjoys the peace and quiet and enjoyable fishing it provides.  He is not too concerned about what he catches and is just as happy putting a few tiddlers in his net as catching the larger specimens. His day job involves him in looking after Joe public in the Manchester area and making sure those who step out of line are taken off the streets. The club’s membership and committee are very pleased to accept Alan’s wishes to become a bailiff and know Roy our Head Bailiff is happy he is on board and keen to work with him.  The strength of our bailiff team with the introduction of Alan has now increased significantly that the committee feel is now able to adequately manage the clubs fishery.

 

Bailiff: Paul Hindley: 

Paul is one of many newer members who have joined the club over the last few years. Since joining he has shown in many ways that he is keen to play a part in both the running and maintenance of the clubs fisheries turning up on most work parties. He applied and has been granted a committee member’s position that he does effectively putting forward ideas whilst also joining in with anything else the committee has on its agenda.  He offered to join the bailiff team that is as most know headed by Roy Mills the clubs Head Bailiff.  Paul has explained that due to work commitments he will not occasion be able to attend meetings or carryout any bailiff patrolling of the clubs fisheries.  This is not seen as a problem with it only happening spasmodically and there being others who can cover in his absence.  Paul when he has the time also enjoys a bit of fishing with carp being his main quarry.  I expect all members to be polite when asked by Paul or any of our other bailiffs to show their Membership card & Environment Agency licence. This is just one of many important duties bailiffs have to carry out daily to maintain the clubs fisheries for the benefit of our members only.  I am sure all current members will with me wish Paul all the best in the positions taken up by him in the club.

 

Bailiff: Mike Walker:

Mike has a number of old friends in the club and joined after being introduced by Roy Mills our Head Bailiff.  Since joining he has become a committee member and now a bailiff.  He makes sure he attends and is a regular at the clubs work parties with him obviously having a keen interest in the development and general maintenance of the clubs fisheries.  He does really enjoy his fishing with like many other anglers Carp being his favourite fish to catch. Mike is a local resident of Knutsford so he is ideally suited as a club bailiff with all our fisheries being local to him.  Once you have met Mike on the bank it will be difficult for you to forget him with him as one would say standing out from the crowd.  Mike in the short time has been a member who has proved be both a good committee member and fishery bailiff.  I trust all members will when meeting him offer him the same politeness as I would expect is shown by all members.
