The Barbel Society
Midlands’ Rivers Annual Research & Conservation Fundraiser 2016

Fellow Angler,
Our first event proved to be a great success with the Society raising just shy of £3000. All proceeds were put towards the Teme PHD project and radio tracking the movement of barbel within the river system.
We aim to build on this project year on year and as time goes on, The Barbel Society will face a growing list of habitat restoration projects and enhancement schemes that will not only benefit the barbel but all species, as well as improving habitat for all wildlife along the way.


Our second instalment of the Midlands rivers fundraiser event will be held on the 8th October 2016 and consist of a friendly fishing competition taking place in the day over three prolific fisheries on the river Severn and Teme (car permits and maps will be issued to all guests prior to event), followed by a fantastic 3-course meal and auction in the evening at The Fownes Hotel in the heart of Worcester city centre. Our guest speaker for the evening will be none other than Des Taylor.

A cost of £50 per head will include your entry to the fishing match, dinner at the hotel in the evening and a chance to bid on some fantastic lots in the auction.

For those of you intending on an overnight stay at the hotel, you will need to book early to avoid disappointment as we only have a certain amount of rooms reserved for the event. All details and references for bookings will be provided with each application. Alternative accommodation in and around the malvern hills can be provided upon request.

If you would like to receive an invitation to this years event please contact Bobby Baker –

We look forward to hearing from you!
