PARKING AT THE WHITE HORSE CHEDGRAVE

 

Obviously being a situated in a small village the White Horse has limited parking, please do not park on sharp bend the Loddon side of the pub, this causes an obstruction to larger vehicles trying to negotiate the corner and also reduces visibility to vehicles and pedestrians

Please do not park on the Triangle area on the junction opposite the pub, this is reserved for residents only.

 

WHERE YOU CAN PARK

  1. Please try to get as many cars inside the pub car park as possible by parking sensibly.

  2. If the car park is full you can park in a fishtail fashion on the ramp in the retail area opposite the pub.

  3. Make use of the car park adjacent to the Marina about 150 yards into Loddon opposite the Premier Store, this has free parking for the first two hours but you must obtain a ticket from the machine.

  4. If none of the above three options are available then park on the pub side of Norwich Road towards the A146 making sure that you don’t obstruct the bus stop.

  5. There is no need to turn round when going to the bank drive towards the A146 for approximately 300 yards, turn right and follow road to the end and it will bring you back out onto Langley Road where you turn left.

The pub will be serving breakfasts from 07:00

I appreciate that once you have drawn you want to get to the bank as soon as possible, however consideration to the local community is just as important.

Thanking you in anticipation of your cooperation

ers 2013 results 4Currently the Region will run the Eastern Regional Shield on an annual basis. This competition which started back in 1969, is well represented across the region and hopefully will continue to grow in strength and remain focussed on the main river venues across the region.

Pictured left are the 2013 winners Sensas Mark One.

adams mill 1EA fisheries officers have restored a spawning bed on Adams Mill, and reinforced a 40 yard section of bank to stop it collapsing in on another section of gravels. They put in a tree trunk as a ‘deflector’ really kicking up turbulence to oxygenate the gravel bed immediately below.

EA staff were assisted by members from MKAA in what was seen a great partnership project on the Upper Ouse.

 

 

 

Have a nice day

The forum has a key role to play in working at both regional and local level with the Environment Agency, providing consultation and partnership on fisheries and angling. 

As can be seen from the diagram left, the forum supports 4 strongly supported consultatives around the region. All are locally focussed and have great support from the local F&B officers from the Environment Agency Work continues in establishing a consultative structure and representation across the region 

 

 

EA areas 2014The forum which is one of the eight across England and was brought about in 2011 to provide focus at Regional level within the Angling Trust. It also has a key role to play in working at both regional and local level with the Environment Agency, providing consultation and partnership on fisheries and angling.  The forum ran at regional level upto the summer of 2014, when the agency annouced that the regional management tier was being removed in thier round of restructiring.

We have therefore introduced a new structure which enables the forum to become focussed at area level. Linking up with the stong consultative structure in existance across the Eastern Region. 

Re-aligned to EA Area level into 3 areas, Lincs & Northants - Beds & Cambs - Essex, Suffolk & Norfolk

New relationship between EA & Anglers at Officer and Area Management level

Much more locally driven and focussed

New Management forum introduced between EA & AT at area level

The forum supports 4 strongly supported consultatives around the region.

All are locally focussed and have great support from the local F&B officers from the Environment Agency.

 

The group meets every 3 months to bring together Angling Clubs and Associations from across the Upper Ouse catchment. These covers an area from Hunstanton in the North to Royston in the South and from Bury St Edmunds to Huntingdon East to West.

LOFFCA has been in existence since the mid seventies, with the late Ken Ball and Colin Clare being the former members. It was reformed and refocused under the NAFAC banner with the late Terry Mainsbridge in 2001. Since then it has become a consultative member of the Angling Trust with an active membership of around 20 clubs.

If you are interested in joining LOFFCA, then please contact the Secretary. We can make a difference

 

Angling benefits our environment in many ways. The Environment Agency has the responsibility of maintaining, improving and developing fisheries now and for the future.

We want to improve fish stocks and provide a better environment for wildlife and people. We want to make it possible for more people of all abilities to enjoy angling and for fisheries in Anglian Region to provide a positive contribution to the quality of people’s lives.

Healthy fish populations in our rivers and still waters are a good indication that we are looking after our water environment. Angling provides a valuable opportunity for economic growth particularly in rural areas. It is an activity that can be enjoyed by everyone and has the potential to provide positive social, health and  educational benefits. It can build self-esteem and confidence and is increasingly being used to address social inclusion and to tackle antisocial behaviour.

A great deal has been achieved over the last 20 years, as water quality has improved. Pressures on our fisheries the wider environment still remain with unprecedented demands for water, increasing development, intensive agriculture and the impact of climate change. In the face of such change, it is crucial that the importance and value of our fisheries are recognised.

We are committed to ensuring that we maximise the benefits from the implementation of the Water Framework Directive. The Environment Agency is here to meet these challenges and through working together, our fisheries can be protected and improved now and for the future.
