Stocking from Heather Fisheries. [11/11/2008]

Linear Locking Times and Security. [11/11/2008]

LINEAR FISHERIES PRESS RELEASE:

Linear would like to remind visitors about the security and locking procedures currently in place at their fishery sites in Oxfordshire. From the 1st October 2008 until the end of February 2009 all complex gates will be locked from 6pm until 8am after which they will revert back to a 9pm close during the spring and summer months. This does not mean fishing is not allowed at night but that those fishing and their vehicles will be locked in for their own security. Anyone wishing to leave outside locking hours should ensure that they and their vehicle have left the fishery in good time.

Note: The fishery staff are no longer locking the complex gates at night as this duty has been passed onto R&R Frontline Security, this well respected Oxford based security firm are also being employed to patrol the complex throughout the night and in fact have been doing so since August 2008. Please remember that after 6pm winter and 9pm spring/summer you will not be able to get into the site and will have to wait in the Hardwick Car Park until 8am the following morning.
