Many of you will now know the water share agreement that Luton AC had with Vauxhall at Tingrith, has been concluded by Luton AC from May 31st 2019. The agreement came into place in 2011 after Vauxhall purchased the Mere and Woodlands Lake, anglers from both Clubs have been on good terms during this period. If any Luton member would like to continue fishing at this fantastic venue, the answer is simple, join Vauxhall for the new season starting June 16th! You will be very welcome.
Membership to the Club will be closed as of February 18th 2019. Membership for June 16th 2019 onwards will be available to purchase from early April onwards.
Members who have a season book will still be able to apply for their spring ticket if they wish to.
So from February 18th, no new membership applications will be accepted. The Tackle shops will have any unsold books collected from them over the next few days.
