The Elm Park Hornchurch & District Angling Society was established in 1936 and from small beginnings has flourished into a very active medium sized club.
We currently have six fisheries that we actually own or rent, consisting of three stretches of river and two stillwater fisheries containing a total of three lakes. We pride ourselves on supplying our members with very good all-round coarse fishing in quiet well maintained fisheries.
Each month we have a Monthly Club Outing (MCO) to various venues for which a trophy is awarded to the heaviest catch. There are also trophies awarded for the heaviest weight of all species caught throughout the season (not necessarily on club matches). We also participate in many matches ranging from National events to local inter-club matches. We also have a number of "internal" competitions, including Ladies and Juniors matches.
The Society particularly welcomes new members who will, when possible, participate in club activities. These include Monthly Club Outings, social functions, General Meetings and voluntary fisheries Working Parties. Members are naturally not expected to attend all our activities, but we like to see them at our General Meetings, which for many are social events. This is after all an active fishing club and not, like some others, just an association of anglers.
We welcome new members into our friendly Society whether experienced anglers or not. Most members are "pleasure" anglers, but we have a wide range of interests ranging from carp enthusiasts to those more match orientated.
The society also holds open days and family fishing days in conjunction with the Angling Trust
As of Monday 28th April 2014, the Society's headquarters will now be located at The Royal United Services and Social Club, 28 Mawney Road, Romford, RM7 7HB, where we hold two General Meetings on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month, plus one meeting of the Executive Committee on each 1st Monday, with an AGM in April.
