WORCESTER & DISTRICT UNITED ANGLERS' ASSOCIATION
Headquarters - Barbourne Ex-Service Mens Club
The Moors, Worester.
Will members please note that there is a Canoe Event schedulaed for the 12 JULY 2015 on the Birmingham to Worcester canal sections which is likely to cause severe disrution. To avoid would be prudent. This disruption may also extend to adjacent river venues.
TO ALL WDUAA ANGLERS.
We have received a letter from the Canal and Rivers Trust representing some of the residents of Rushton Court who’s flats and apartments back on to the Worcester & Birmingham canal between Bridge 2 (Mill Street) and Bridge 3 (Sidbury). They wished to raise their concerns over the number of anglers that appear to be urinating in the hedge row with no consideration for the properties and residents that live in them on the opposite side of the canal.
We politely request that all anglers representing the WDUAA please observe the comments and observe due consideration when answering a call of nature in such residential areas.
Many thanks for your co-operation.
Ray Ravenall - Chairman WDUAA.
Worcester Canoe Clubs annual “Worcester Ring Canoe Challenge”
This year we are running this event on Saturday 22nd July. Over 100 kayaks and Canoes will be paddling from the centre of Worcester, to Diglis Basin, up the Worcester to Birmingham Canal to the Hanbury Junction, turning left onto the Droitwich Canal back to the Severn at Hawford, then downstream back to Worcester. All paddlers will be portaging around the locks.
Starts will be staggered from 9am to 11am, which should mean that we are clear of the locks at Oddingly by 1pm, and clear of the Droitwich Canal by 5pm
All participants have been asked to respect other waterways users; fishermen, rowers and other boat users. We are aiming for a fun, amiable day for all
Regarding last year we appreciate the efforts of the Angling clubs by informing their members of this, I feel that we had no issues
