Directions to The Five Bridges, Carvery, Beefeater, Pub
The Five Bridges Pub in Kent, is on the outskirts of Queenborough, on the Isle of Sheppey, just off the A249. There is ample parking next to The Five Bridges pub. It’s just past Morrissons on the
left hand side on the way to the lakes.
In mid December every year the Society organises a friendly match for members, followed by a Christmas lunch and friendly get together in pub/restaurant close to the venue.
Being a light hearted social affair, there are several prizes up for grabs and a raffle, also with several prizes, and a chance to catch up with old fishing friends and make new ones too!
The match and the post-match festivities are open to all members and the match fees, prizes and the Christmas lunch are all funded by the Society.
Places are always limited, either because of the number of pegs available for the match, or because of the number places available in the pub/restaurant, or both. Because of this, places are allocated on a “first come, first served” basis, once applications to take part are accepted.
