**Flooding Update** 29/03/24

Unbelievably the site is starting to flood again, for the 6th time this winter, just bloody unheard of for one winter season.........

We've now closed Tar Farm Lake's 4,7,8 and may lose TF5 by Sunday. Our apologies to anyone booked onto these waters over the busy Easter weekend. The team from CATCH will be in touch via email to re-book or refund anyone affected.

The levels on Oxlease are now rising faster than we'd like and we have water coming into Hardwick Lake. These waters are still open but we are keeping an eye on them, and may have to close areas for safety reason at some point over the next few days.

Again our apologies for the inconvenience - We'll obviously keep you all informed and of course pray for no more rain!!!

**Due to the high water levels we currently still have on Oxlease Lake, the Charity Event scheduled for this weekend has now been moved to Hardwick/Smiths Lake.
Parts of Oxlease will be open for general day tickets this weekend, we just cannot say exactly how many pegs at the moment**

The waters levels are dropping nicely now, so we should have almost all lakes back open, ready for the Easter weekend, but lets just pray for no more heavy rain.........
