As promised, we want to update you all on the situation regarding the re-opening of public access and fishing at Fontburn.
We have now set a re-opening date for all visitors of Saturday 29 August. We appreciate this is later than many of you would have hoped.
As we are sure you’ll appreciate, we can only open when we are fully confident that we can do so in a way that is safe for everyone.
At present, some members of our Leisure team are currently deployed elsewhere in the business due to Covid-19, while others are self-isolating or shielding.
Additionally, it is important that those members of the team who are working hard to provide a safe environment and experience for visitors and anglers at our other sites can continue to do so, alongside re-stocking Fontburn in time for re-opening.
Due to the extended closure, we will be extending the fishing season at Fontburn to Wednesday 23 December.
We would like to thank you for your patience and, like you, we can’t wait to re-open.
