Angling assists to reduce Anti-Social Behaviour in Bridgwater

Friends of Brownes Pond have been trying for a long time to get some angling coaching off the ground. What has now come together has been wonderful to see and be a part of. The support and commitment to this from the Angling Trust, Sportivate and Fishwish Ltd has provided these youngsters with a great start to what might become a lifelong interest. It has also already helped to reduce the anti-social behaviour in the area by capturing the attention of certain individuals who are now keen to learn more and become respected members of the angling fraternity.

"In spite of the very heavy rain, last night was a great success. We managed to give out certificates and the equipment from Dean went down a storm! The young anglers went away wet through but full of enthusiasm." Linda Dodd, FOBP member.
