GHOF Nets £5424 Grant

Get Hooked on Fishing has netted thousands of pounds towards angling and environmental projects.  The funds were awarded by Annandale and Eskdale Area Committee to enable 120 young people across the region to attend sessions.  The participants will now work with registered coaches, mentors and local volunteers in the classroom and at Broom Fisheries near Newbie as part of the project.

Grant Awarded


Lesley Arkison, GHOF co-ordinator for Scotland, said that "By providing positive support mechanisms, we will be able to mentor the young people in gaining qualifications and motivate them to re-engage back into education and training."

The project which is also being part funded by the Scottish Government, European Community and Dumfries and Galloway Leader Programme, will also assist young people to participate in a competition at Cudmore Fisheries in Newcastle Under Lyme.
