Eastbourne Angling Association offers angling opportunities, competitions and events to its members.
After being open for a few days our members are coming back,and we are so pleased to see you all,
So we have decided,over the weekend,Friday Night,Saturday Lunch,and Sunday Lunch,
Once you have placed your Drinks order,in the box at the left end of the bar,you return to your table,and then,YOUR DRINKS WILL BE DELIVERED TO YOUR TABLE,BY OUR WAITRESSES
This will alleviate too many people,walking around the clubhouse unnecessary.
And when you do have to walk around,please follow our designated routes,shown in red/white.
Our aim is to make your visits as pleasant as possible
Each time you get your drinks,you will get a receipt.
we are encouraging CONTACTLESS PAYMENT,or with any CARD.
Purely .on a hygeine basis CASH is really a NO NO,but if that is all you have,we will accomodate you,but prefer NOT TO.
Only the freshest ingredients,with all the goodness, of being cooked in house
We know one or two have missed having a meal or snack,whilst in the club
SUE will be open every,
Saturday 11.30 -2.00pm
Sue and Rachel have achieved an exceptionally good health and safety rating from the EBC
It doesn't matter how it is delivered ,
Its the taste that counts
To one and all of our members
We hope this memo finds you all safe and well.
We will be reopening the club,on Monday 6th July at 11.00am,there will be stringent measures,that the Government have set us (quite rightly)
And even though we can enjoy ourselves,we must maintain the standards set against us.
First of all when you come into the clubhouse,you will see on your right 3 new notice boards PLEASE READ THEM,the information appertains to everyone,on how we must conduct ourselves,when in the clubhouse.
Please be patient,we are all learning together.
Until further notice NO GUESTS OR CHILDREN will be allowed in the Clubhouse.
Once we have ascertained the situation,with seating and numbers attending,we can then review the situation.
The one thing we cannot do,is go over the capacity of our seating plan.
WITHOUT A DOUBT WE WOULD BE SHUT DOWN
If upon arriving at the club,the FULL sign is showing,we are afraid that if you wish,you can wait in the foyer,"social distancing" until someone leaves the building .
AT THIS PRESENT TIME THERE WILL BE NO ,LIVE BANDS,RAFFLES,OR BINGO.
We hope we can make your comeback experience,as good and as safe as possible.
We can do this together,and then I am sure,sooner than later,we will be back to trading as normal

If you are just on holiday or actually live in Eastbourne where better than to spend your time relaxin ,and enjoying a drink. Whether it may be a coffee,or something a little stronger.
In the fine months the views from our elevated decking is superb,listen to the lapping of the waves,whilst watching the world go by.
And in the darker,drearier months sit on our glass fronted heated verandah,where you can see to Hastings in the East and Beachy head in the West.
And if you are on holiday,why not take advantage of temporary membership for just £2.00 per week per person.
Just one visit and you would have saved that on your drinks alone
If after looking through our site,you like what you see,and you think you would like to join or if you would like to know something about our memberships ,go to our contact us page,send us your details and we can answer your query or send out NEW MEMBERSHIP FORMS,
Our inception took place in 1905 just half a mile from our present building, when like-minded men who needed food for their tables set up the local angling club.
They were local tradesmen, and did the work on their new wooden clubhouse all themselves.
They then bought, and in some instances built, their own boats to go to sea. As you can imagine, they were all row boats.
Then in the 1930s when the first SEAGULL engines appeared, this meant they could go further afield.
In 1969 the council needed the land on which the club was situated, so we moved to our present site which was opened in 1971.
In the heydays of the 1980s, we hosted the Eastbourne town boat fishing festival, which was recognised all over Europe. We had several competitors from Germany and Denmark.
Even though we are specifically a Boat angling club, we cater for all genres of fishing, and our members enjoy trying their hands at all types of fishing.
We have just resurrected our beach angling section which is extremely well attended, mainly because the fish are returning to our shores, and our camaraderie extends throughout the club.
