The Canal and River Trust will be making improvements to the Kennet & Avon Canal towpath east of Newbury between Bridge 58 (A339 Flyover) and Bridge 50 Hambridge Road this summer. The work is scheduled to commence on Monday 22 June and be completed by Wednesday 9 September 2020. The towpath will be closed to the public between these dates for safety reasons. During the first week vegetation and preparatory works will be carried out between Bridge 58, (A339 Flyover) and Bridge 53 Whitehouse Cross-over Bridge, following which the whole section will be closed for the main towpath improvement works.

Following the latest statement from the Government and the good work carried out by the Angling Trust, the club will be re-opening our Lakes at 12 noon on 13th May.
Initially all lakes are opening except Bellwood which still has flood damage. Due to the Government rules on COVID-19 a number of measures have been introduced which must be followed by all anglers.
Please read and comply with these new rules carefully, which have been introduced to protect us all and give everyone the opportunity to start fishing again.
Part of Avington is now open, subject to these additional temporary conditions which must be followed.
This is a message to all members who were bailiffs last year, and to anybody who would like to become a bailiff for the NAA.
