Junior Training
In order to sponsor adequately for fishing equipment for the junior training we are supporting we now have a scheme where members might be able to help – we all have fishing tackle in our garages/ sheds that we no longer use – too good to throw away but cannot be bothered to offer up for sale – we have the answer – give it to us to sell and with the cash raised we will put money to it and buy decent gear for the juniors use – everyone a winner – please help and when next on the complex pass the unwanted gear you have to Paul, Ian, Dean or Stuart and they will do the rest – Thankyou -
