Horseshoe Lake - Important notice - Covid-19

Important update (23/03/2020)

Following the Prime Ministers address this evening, the Carp Society feel we need to take action to close our lakes will close with immediate effect. Whilst we had hoped to keep the lakes open to permit holders whilst closing our shop and asking anglers to follow sensible health care and arrangement, Government announcements, have however taken that decision out of our hands.

Horseshoe, Farriers and Little Farriers will therefore close with immediate effect, any anglers present should leave the lakes by 12 midday tomorrow 24/032020 & return home, after this the gate locks will be changed until further notice. We know this will be disappointing to anglers, a further statement will be issued as soon as we know more.

As from (22/03/2020) now and until further notice, day tickets will not be available for Horseshoe Lake. We are sorry to the people planning to come down but I’m sure everyone is well aware that this measure hasn’t been taken lightly but in view of everything going on it’s the best cause of action.

Permit holders can still fish but please act sensibly. If you use the facilities wash them after use. Keep your distance from other people. If people act responsibly it may well be possible to remain open until or if we are forced to close.

Additional as of today all double swims will be SINGLE - permitting only one angler to be present/fish from a swim this is to ensure social distancing. Please ensure to adhere to social distancing which means keeping 2m away from other people this includes standing around talking to fellow anglers. Please act responsibly.
But as it stands there’s no day tickets but permit holders may still come.

Thank you, we will keep you informed should anything change.
