In summary, the club continues to work with the various stakeholders to support the recovery of the river following last year's pollution event. Additionally, because of the various actions taken by the club, permit prices will be reduced for the 2019-20 season and all venues remain on the ticket.
The committee wish to thank all those that attended.
Claydon Brook Venues Looking Good

For more information on the pollution event affecting the Ouse we have set up a dedicated page to provide information on this incident click here
Upper Ouse Pollution Update
The following venues are unaffected:-
   Roman Bridge
   The Coombs
   Lenborough.

The pollution event has affected the following club venues:-
  Moreton Mill to just above Twin Point
  The Twins - Maids Moreton Poor Charity Field
  Dick Walkers - Downstream Thornton Bridge
  Leckhampstead Bridge (Straight and Horses Field).
 
The assocation has written letters to our local MPs (Buckingham and South Northants), the Buckingham Town Council and the riparian owners of our five affected venues. The main purpose of these letters is to raise the profile of the situation and also gain the maximum amount of support to ensure the EA applies the necessary resources to their recovery phase.

We also plan to work with Buckingham Town Council with the view that a 'town or district wide partnership group' may be formed. We will keep you up to date as things progress.

The club is currently looking at ways it can support the efforts of the Environment Agency and the affected stakeholders to restore the river ecosystem to a level at least equal to it's prior state before the incident.
