WARNING FROM JON MORLEY 1 JULY 2106

Just to make everyone aware, we now have blue green algae in both reservoirs and in the River Stour. Signs have been put up around the site to inform members of the public.

Please make your members aware of this and the fact that any risk associated with activities on the water is down to each individual user. The minimum requirement is that anything put into the water at Longham should be washed down afterwards prior to being used elsewhere.

Flying at Longham has been approved by formal agreement between the landowners, Bournemouth Water and the Club. Flying was permitted from 1 Jan 2012.

Flying at Longham is open to any Club member. (You can join the Club here) You must carry your Club membership cardwith you when flying. Solo flying is restricted to holders of A and above fixed wing certificates. Uncertified fliers may fly but must be supervised by a A Cert holder or above.

The Reservoir is located at BH22 9AB and the turning to the Study Centre is on the north side of the A348 Ringwood Road about half a mile south of the Longham double roundabout junction B3073/A348. There is a white house on the south side of the road. The turning is opposite this house.

The site is open every day from 0800 to one hour after sunset. There is no restriction on public access (although parking is restricted to permit holders such as Club members).
