First day of Spring! Makes you want to win a holiday!
Thursday 1 March 2018
March 1st is the first day of meteorological Spring today and Cherry Lake does not look like it as you can see from the picture below!
Given how cold the week has been with the ‘Beast from the East’, I am happy to report that all lakes are largely ice free. I am not sure why given it was minus 7C when I got home last night? The aerators have done a great job. The good news is that after we get through the next 24 hours that the temperature is on a warming trend. Who knows it might even feel like Spring in the next week or so.
I will confess to being a bit sick of the cold…….it makes you want to think about taking a holiday. So I thought I would take this opportunity to remind everyone that there are two free holidays up for grabs at Cherry Lakes this year through two free prize draws.
The first recognises and celebrates our 5th anniversary. Everybody who books or stays in any of our Lodges or Cherry Lake Cottage before 30 September will be entered automatically into a free prize draw. The winner will be invited to take a free weekend or mid-week break with us before the end of the year. We have plenty of vacancies still remaining. As they say ‘you have to be in it…to win it’!
Since we launched the Cherry Lakes 30+club in 2014, 79 different anglers have caught one or more Carp over 30lb from Cherry Lakes. We expect to comfortably to smash through the 100 30+ club membership barrier in 2018. We also think this significant milestone is worth recognising. So we are going to run another free prize draw for all those anglers who catch a thirty in 2018. The lucky angler will win a free weekend break on Cherry Lake to be taken by the end of March 2019.
I have included a couple of my favourite photos from last summer to compensate for the ‘Spring shot’ below.
