RA VETERANS AND FINAL PRACC EVENT at POOLE
8th & 9th OCTOBER
IMPORTANT AMENDMENT TO THE VENUE

Due to the continuation of the problem with the weed in our home lake in Poole Park it has been decided that both of the above events will be run at our alternative lake at LONGHAM.

This water is situated about a mile out of Ferndown (on the Bournemouth/Poole side). Anyone who has booked accommodation for either or both of these days need not worry as the new venue is no more the 5 miles away from our Poole Park location.

A jetty has been recently installed at Longham so launching and recovering of boats should be no problem. We have use of a clubroom on site and refreshments will be available throughout the day. The clubroom also has good toilet facilities.

The lake is quite easy to find situated about a mile from Ferndown on the main A348. From the east continue on the A31 from Southampton – continue through Ferndown on the A348. About a mile after leaving Ferndown go straight on at a mini roundabout (large cycle shop on right). 4/500 yds turn right immediately opposite a white painted cottage on your left – you are there.

From Poole direction follow signs to Ringwood/Ferndown (A3049). At roundabout with “Bear Cross” pub on left continue on A348 (Ringwood/Ferndown). Cross river Stour over narrowish bridge with sharp left and sharp right turn. 5/600 yards past here turn off main road immediately opposite white painted cottage – you have arrived

The post code for here is BH22 9AN and the grid reference SZ 065 983. The water authority website is HERE and a map showing the location is on this page.
