The club did some excellent work for disabled, children and able bodied adults who wanted to try fishing. grafting to raise funding for stock and using suitably qualified instuctors they ran session on Saturday mornings but had to stop on May 2018 because poachers, mergansers, goosanders and cormorant have slaughtered the stocks of fish. I do hope that they can gain more funding there's not enough of this selfless work being done, good luck to you all.
