HASSRA Eastbourne has been fundraising for charity for many years now but during covid had been unable to donate it. This left us at the start of this year with a very healthy, £900 to donate. During the AGM we asked for suggestions of local charities our members would like to support. Consideration was given to all suggestions and we discussed splitting the amount between a number of charities or giving the full amount to just one.
The committee decided to give the full £900 to Children with Cancer Fund (Polegate), a charity which has also supported staff over the years.
We contacted them and arranged for their operations manager Chloe to come and collect the cheque during a coffee morning.
Staff came and supported us as we presented Chloe with the cheque. Chloe told us about the work they do supporting local families whose children have cancer. She explained they support the whole family, granting wishes, arranging outings and offering support from other families facing the same fight. The charity had recently celebrated their 25th Anniversary and have a Grand Ball planned for October this year. The money donated will be going to go towards this very special celebratory event for all the families they have supported over the years. Eastbourne Jobcentre staff love events which involve food so this is an event we all felt was a good use of the money.

Well, feast your eyes on what was a glorious day for South East's Brian, 2023 National Individual Champion.
Brian, together with Chris and Rob, also won the 2023 National Team Championship in what is believed to be a record for an overall team points total .
It must be mentioned that all three were expertly managed and coached by Roy B, who also acted as a bank runner, photographer, and lunch supplier!
Rob Coates - HASSRA South East Angling
HASSRA Festival: Coarse Angling “The National” 8th July 2023
Venue: Tunnel Barn Farm Fishery near Warwick
Lakes used: High Pool (2 sections), Jenny’s Lake (1 section)
The victorious three man team of Brian, Chris and Rob fished really well and It was so close at the top between three Regions we didn’t know who had won until it was announced after the match. HASSRA awarded them £20 each in shopping vouchers.
Brian and Rob fished the 5 hour match on High Pool and Chris was on Jenny’s Lake in typical fishing weather of sunshine and showers. Roy as Team Manager was offering encouragement and advice to them where needed. Each angler puts in £10 as pools money to be divided amongst section winner and overall 1st, 2nd & 3rd.
- Brian is our most experience “Nationals” angler. He fished a pole a few sections out in front of his keepnets with various baits on the hook but most successful was “paste” loose feeding over the top. He was catching steadily throughout the match and his final total weight was 133lb 3oz. He won £50 pools money.
- Rob was a little nervous having not fish the “National” for 20 years but with encouragement and advice from the rest of the team fished a great match. He set up two quivertip method feeder rods with a mix of groundbait and soft pellets on the feeder and wafter pellets on the hook, he cast out to the island about 15 yards away. He weighed in 53lb 2oz and picked up £25 pools by default as the section winner.
- Chris set up pole to fish at various distances and depths and caught a few carp, perch & skimmer in the first 2 hours then bites were hard to come by in the next hour. It picked up again especially in the last hour when he dropped his method feeder down the edge where he caught carp steadily. Anglers are allowed a maximum of 65lb in a keepenet, unfortunately Chris had too many in one net (an easy mistake to make) so a penalty is applied and only 60lb was counted, he had 9lb 9oz in his second net, giving a total of 69lb 9oz and second in section. Unluckily his true total weight would have put him in first place on the lake.

The second golf day saw a return to Hoebridge Golf Centre, Old Woking. The 12 players were split into 4 groups of 3 for an 18 hole individual Stableford competition. All in all it was a close competition with the majority of players getting 33 points or more. There was however a tie at the top with both Richard and Mark coming in with 38 points. On countback the trophy was won by Richard. The nearest the pin prize went to Gavin and longest drive to Mark. It is hoped that we will return to this venue again next year for both our society day and for the Trew Cup match against London and East of England Regions which our Region is hosting in 2024.
The society also enters teams in CSSC golf events over the year. The first of which was at Stoke by Nayland, Colchester in March where we had two teams of four representing the Region. As always the event attracts a lot of players from across the country and both our teams put in an excellent performance finishing in second and third spots overall after two days of golf. Carlo, Mark, Steve and Richard made up the ‘A’ team and Mark, Paul, Mark and Gavin the ‘B’ team.
The second CSSC event we entered was for the Haddow trophy at Redditch Golf Club, an event we have contested for the past few years. Again a team event against other Government Departments where we entered two teams of 4 and once again put in a brilliant performance with the ‘A’ team of Carlo, Mark, Paul and Mark finishing in runners up spot overall and the ‘B’ team of Sam, Guy, Alex and Gavin in third place. Special mention should go to two members of the ‘A’ team, Carlo, who won the individual event for the best Stableford points score of 38 points on the first day and to Mark who won on the second day with 37. Overall, the best result we have achieved in this competition.
The next event of the season was our HASSRA golf day which incorporated the HASSRA national qualifying competition with the winners of both the men's and ladies events going onto Warwick in September to represent the Region in the HASSRA National Golf Championships. The day was held at Copthorne golf club, Surrey with an entry of 13 players for an 18 hole individual event. The day was won by Steve S who took the men’s gross title, Gavin the men’s nett title and Gill and Julie the ladies titles. Congratulations to all the winners who will be representing the Region at the HASSRA nationals. Steve also managed to win the nearest the pin prize.
The HASSRA South East Regional team stayed over at The Ship Inn, West Stour, Nr Gillingham, Dorset SP8 5RP.
The weather was considerably better than when we last fished Ash Lake at Todber Manor Fisheries in 2017 when the rain was lashing down and the wind blowing a gale. That day we also had two helicopter gunships flying overhead so quite a day to remember!
Unfortunately, the West of England team only had five anglers so it was agreed that all six of our anglers would fish, but our bottom weight would be dropped.
You will note from the results below that HASSRA South East won this match by quite a large margin!

The other 3-way Inter-Regional match will be against HASSRA The East of England and HASSRA London on 22/10/2023. We look forward to seeing you at the Summer Shield on 30/06/2023 on Lake 6, Orchard Place Farm Fishery, TN12 6NY.
Until then Tight Lines!
The National Swimming Team did HASSRA proud and we looked great in our HASSRA South East polo shirts!
I said at the AGM that my wife Sam and I were the only HASSRA South East Team members, but we didn't realise we had a new star swimmer from Hastings JC! Jayne was not only the Overall Women's Champion, she won the Firmboard and Springboard Diving and was part of our women's Team who won the CSSC Lifesaving Championship. She was also a key swimmer in our first choice relay team. As her Swim Team manager, I was a bit disapointed that she wouldn't also join our Water Polo team but you can't have everything!
HASSRA Ladies came First, Second and Third in the Women's Overall Championship, helping us win the Women's Open Championship Trophy.
Our Men won the HASSRA Masters Championship. (that's the Cup in the photo). We'd not won this since 2005. The salver shown was for the Aggregate Team winners and the shield was for Overall Champions.
The GK Quiz winning team from Ilford were overall winners for the GK quiz.
Second is the Sports Quiz winning team, combination of Milton Keynes and Chatham. Again, overall winners for the Sports quiz on the day.
Well done everyone.
