This is a polite notice,concerning memberships,our membership was due in July and we have kept it open until the end of August.
We realised that it has not been easy for anyone,and that is why we gave a 20% discount on this years membership.
So for all members who have not renewed,it is now deemed your membership has lapsed,we do not want to get heavy handed,but if you have not renewed by the 30th of September,and
If you intend to continue with us,after that date,you will have to rejoin as a NEW MEMBER.
This is applicable to all genres of membership,so if you have a boat on the beach,and your membership lapses,we have a waiting list for people who are awaiting a berth,so we will have no alternative to ask you to remove your boat to accomodate someone else.
If you have any hardship in paying your subscriptions,please do not hesitate in contacting us,where your request will be kept in the strictest confidence,after scrutiny.
We HAVE DECIDED THAT CHILDREN WILL BE ALLOWED INTO THE CLUBHOUSE ON MONDAYS TO FRIDAYS WITH PARENTS OR GRANDPARENTS,AND THE CHILDREN MUST BE SEATED,.WE STILL CANNOT ALLOW THEM IN ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY'S BECAUSE OF THE NEED FOR SEATING.
WE HAVE NOW INSTALLED STRONGER SELF EXPLANATORY MACHINES,AND HAVE ALSO EXPANDED ON THE AMOUNT OF SANATISING STATIONS AROUND THE CLUB,THIS IS FOR YOUR WELL BEING.
BUT CAN YOU PLEASE ALSO HELP US,AND ONE THING THAT SHOULD NOT BE DISMISSED IS THAT "YOU MUST WASH YOUR HANDS AFTER HAVING BEEN TO THE TOILET"
THANK YOU FOR COMPLYING TO THESE REGULATIONS

We know one or two have missed having a meal or snack,whilst in the club
RACHEL&SUE will be open every,
Saturday 12.00 -2.30pm
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
If you are just on holiday or actually live in Eastbourne where better than to spend your time relaxing ,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. One of our members Ron Yates,won the SOUTHERN TV TROPHY,hosted by the late great Jack Hargreaves.
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.
