We hope you are all managing to stay safe and healthy during these very difficult times. At the current moment, Wintons remains open, and we are happy to welcome you. We are following government guidance very closely, particularly on social distancing. We are lucky to be in an industry where it is easy to have minimal contact. We are therefore asking members and visitors NOT to come into the office. Minimal contact will be achieved by paying for your fishing by phone (on booking or from the carpark on arrival) on a debit card or dropping the cash in an envelope through our letter box with your name and booking details. Please let us know by email, text or phone when you have arrived. We can also bring bait and tackle round to your swim from the shop. Please keep a safe distance apart. The general advice is to ensure everyone adopts sensible cleaning practices to avoid catching or spreading Coronavirus. We ask that anyone visiting the complex washes their hands thoroughly on arrival and during their visit. We are finding it hard to buy toilet paper if you can bring your own will be extremely helpful. We will update the news page if the above changes.
PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE FISHERY IF YOU OR ANYONE YOU HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH IN THE LAST 14 DAYS ARE FEELING UNWELL, HAVE A NEW PERSISTENT COUGH, A HIGH TEMPERATURE OR SHORTNESS OF BREATH.
