KENT WILDFOWLERS ACQUIRE MAJOR CARP FISHERY

Recommended Posts

The KWCA has continued its policy of expansion and diversification by acquiring a 10-year lease over a 180-acre carp fishery. The fishery is a well established carp fishery with 10 well-stocked lakes across mid and west Kent.

This new initiative takes the KWCA to a new level in both its fishing section, and in terms of overall membership growth. The club will see its membership grow by about 600 with this acquisition, and overall membership grow to over 1,500. At a time when country sports are besieged as never before, being able to demonstrate such large and widespread support from across the sector will give the KWCA more muscle and influence going forward.

Mainstream shooting activities will of course continue, with further growth in the number shooting areas anticipated during 2022.

Update on Fishery progress.

260 Fishery members enrolled in two weeks from opening, meaning we have already taken enough cash to break-even for the whole Fishery yearย 

Add to that over 430 renewals for the main part of the club.

Looks like being a good 2022/23 for us.

Must be me being stupid,

in February 24th

Theย club will see its membership grow by aboutย 600 with this acquisition, and overall membership grow to over 1,500.

Now after membership due for 2022/23

260ย Fishery members Add to that over 430 renewals for the main part of the club.

So 690 unless the over 430 is significantly over 430 like 1240

or where am I going wrong ?

I'm reading that there are about 600 members carried over from the previous club's membership ? 2 club's members converged, KWCA and Mid-Kent Fisheries, with a predicted membership of over 1500 ? Final figures don't appear to be posted yet ๐Ÿคท That's how I'm reading it.

Perhaps Alan will look in and make things clearer

Exactly, that's the membership so far against a predicted (hope for!) 1,500. As of this morning 827 - which is pleasing at this very early stage (renewals were due 1st April, although many paid before that).

Thanks for the reply Alan, much appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚

A quick question if I may,,,, if I wanted to join as an air rifle shooter only, what are the fees for joining and annually please.

Fee for Air Rifle Hunting is ยฃ175 all in. Daily permits (at no charge) for hunting across 27 sites currently available. We expect to add to the 27 sites during the year. Includes full insurance cover.

ARH members currently capped at 70, with 7 vacancies as of this morning!

Thanks for that ๐Ÿ‘ I had a glance at the KWCA website and I'm sure I saw that the visits for ARH was limited ? Could you clarify that please ? TIA

There are a few limitations: on certain areas access is closed during the game shooting season; all permit areas are for limited numbers - usually 2; but there is more than enough land to cater for the 70 cap on numbers

Thanks for the reply again Alan. Sorry to be aiming lots of questions your way ๐Ÿ˜

I was referring to the number of visits per annum to locations,,,, is that limited or sort of go as many times as the members want to ?

Just to add,,,, I'm genuinely interested and I'm down near Chilham regularly visiting my partner and working also ๐Ÿ™‚

Appreciate your time ๐Ÿ‘

No limit on annual visits. If there's a permit free you can go! Every day if there's a permit available! We have shooting in North/Mid Kent and Essex, but most of the airgunning is in the Whitstable area, so decent access from the Chilham area
