New otter fence

Recently an otter fence has been installed to protect our fish stocks from predation. The fence has a number of gates installed for members to access swims. It is IMPORTANT that these gate are closed and locked (new coded locks will be installed very soon). If any member leaves a gate open or does not lock the gate after settling into a swim then we will remove membership. There is no point in installing an expensive fence if gates are left open. Our fish stocks must be protected. Lock codes will be the same as the main gate access code. Protect our fish - Always close and lock the otter gates.
