Estate maintenance plays an essential part in ensuring the clubs waters are kept to a very high standard. The Estates Team carry out a planned programme of work on a daily basis and are all volunteers. The Estates Maintenance fee of £87.50, referred to as an Overstamp payment, entitles the member to fish designated, premier club waters between 15th March to 15th June inclusive. This can be purchased separately or with the RESTRICTED - Intermediate Including Overstamp, BAND E - Senior Including Overstamp or BAND C - Pensioner Including Overstamp, only pensioners aged over 70 will receive a free Overstamp, this applies to both existing pensioners and future qualifiers.

Those choosing not to pay the overstamp fee may still earn an overstamp by completing two, six hour work parties, this then allows the member to fish the premier club waters between 15th March to 15th June inclusive.
