Apologies for the delay in keeping members up to date with our progress on the Post Office Angling Society and Coarse 86 Angling Club amalgamation. We are very pleased to be able to let you know that the ballot went in favour of the amalgamation by a very healthy majority from both clubs and the new club will be POAS and C86 trading as our new club name Essex Coarse Angling Society (ECAS), the new committee will consist of all of the committee members from both of the original clubs.
We are still crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s with the solicitors on the final contract, but virtually there. We have also just received confirmation that the new ECAS bank account has been opened and is ready for use, which was one of the main reasons for the delay in taking members subscriptions, but all ready to go now.
The new club will be fully operational from the 1st. April 2024 and members will be able to use all fisheries from that date.
We are currently working on a new ECAS website, but POAS and C86 will still be functional, until it has been completed and ready to go.
Please see attached the new membership renewal form, in the ECAS name, our Membership Secretary details are at the bottom of the form for postage renewals, also the account number and sort code are there for online payments.
Please keep ECAS details for future payments, and please make any cheques out to Essex Coarse Angling Society or ECAS.
Many Thanks for all of your tolerance and patience through this change over period and please do not hesitate in contacting us if you have any questions.
