This auction is really important. Its our main annual event to raise funds to continue our work on Himalayan Balsam (& Mink) control on the Monnow and tributaries were aiming to be the first major catchment in UK to eradicate the wretched weed after 10 years (and almost 13,000 hours work!!) were almost there and, with your help, well get it done.

A few notes on our 2019 MRA Auction:

1 Donors have been very generous again this year, giving us some fabulous lots. Please dont let them, or the Monnow trout, down by seeking to acquire a bargain. This is a charitable fundraising effort let the size of your bids reflect your support.

2 The MRA Auction XII will close at 10 p.m. on Sunday 14th April. Any bids posted after this time will not be counted.

3 The final (highest) bidder at the close will be responsible for payment as posted.

4 Payment should be made as soon as possible after the close. Either by direct transfer to the MRA bank - Account No. 02433069 Sort Code 30-00-03 or by a cheque made payable to the Monnow Rivers Association and sent to The Treasurer, Old Church Farmhouse, Penallt, Monmouth, NP25 4AW Please reference either transfer or cheque with relevant lot no(s)

5 On receipt of payment I will contact you with details of what happens next. Either I will send you a PM or email with details of how you redeem your lot (contact details for fishing, etc.) or I will ask for your address to allow me to post any physical lots.

6 Please be prompt with payment and dont expect me to perform instant miracles with delivery. 70+ lots will take some time to administer and will not be much fun without your cooperation.
