Fishing at Leybourne Lakes Country Park

 

tmactive is proud to announce that it will be taking over the management and operation of Leybourne Lakes Country Park on behalf of Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council. This builds on the very successful partnership operating since 2013 managing the leisure facilities in the Borough.

As part of the plans to enhance the overall management of the park, tmactive has reviewed the current arrangements for managing the fishing rights and following evaluation of submissions from interested parties is delighted to announce its new partner, SWS Fisheries. A new long term licence has been awarded to SWS which will commence on 1 November 2021.

SWS is in the process of building a new website which will be launched next week and provide anglers with an existing ticket to fish the lakes currently managed by Medway Valley Fisheries to have priority access to a new ticket on production of their current membership card. Existing tickets will expire on 31 October and refunds or alternative rights should be sought directly from Medway Valley Fisheries who have issued details on their website. Anglers will be able to purchase a new ticket from next week to take effect from 15 November for the remainder of the current financial year through to the 31 March 2023 – a period of over 1 year and 4 months.

SWS will use the period from 1-15 November to make improvements to the existing provision and ensure all health and safety arrangements are in place before inviting anglers back. New anglers will have the opportunity to purchase a ticket in early November after the priority period offered to existing anglers.

The website www.swsfisheries.co.uk will have an online payment system upon launch and SWS may be contacted in the interim via email at fisheries@swscountryside.co.uk. Facebook and Instagram pages will be launched under the tag SWS Fisheries.

We believe that SWS Fisheries will rejuvenate the Larkfield Complex and plans for re-stocking the lakes will be shared with anglers. We look forward to working closely with SWS to enhance the customer experience and we welcome new and existing anglers to Leybourne Lakes Country Park.
