The Building Bridges project brings together anglers and promotes angling to a wide range of people, including local residents, supplementary schools and visitors to other events. The Angling Trust is leading the project and working in partnership with a range of other organisations.
The coaching team have been teaching people to fish and introducing children to the sport as part of the Canal and River Trust’s Let’s Fish campaign. A team of officers are working with those who run fishing clubs and running competitions which link to larger events like the National Junior Championships.
The Building Bridges team will be running a ‘Let’s Fish’ event at Stanwick Fisheries on 22 September.
