 A Short History of the Club

The club was formed in 1963 when the local wildfowlers were in danger of losing the shooting on the marsh. General disturbance of the marsh by uncontrolled wildfowling and increased awareness by various conservation bodies, also the problems of operating a live firing range by the MOD were the main causes.  The first meeting was held in the “Wheatsheaf Inn”, Gedney Drove End, which is sadly no longer there.  In 1969 Holbeach Wildfowlers Association, Spalding Wildfowlers Association and Gedney Drove End Wildfowlers Association joined forces to form the Dawsmere Group. From that union emerged an agreement with the MOD to allow members of the three clubs to wildfowl over MOD marshes, so giving greater control over this area. The alliance continues today with each new commanding officer of the RAF bombing range being fully briefed from time to time on wildfowling matters.
