Anglers invited to fisheries workshops


The Environment Agency is inviting local anglers and fisheries to one of three free fisheries workshops to be held along the River Severn over the next few weeks.

Environment agency fishing newsThere are 50 places available at each workshop on a first come first served basis. The workshops will take place between 10.00am and 16.30pm at:

  • Welshpool on Saturday 31 January 2009
  • Tewkesbury on Saturday 7 February 2009
  • Bewdley on Saturday 14 March 2009
The aim of the workshops is to give anglers and fisheries the chance to find out what is happening within a number of angling-related organisations, including the Environment Agency, and hear about projects along the river.

A number of speakers will give presentations on:

  • Access / Disability Discrimination Act (DDA)
  • Severn River Trust
  • Get Hooked on Fishing (GHOF), Young Anglers’ Project (YAP) and Coaching Events
  • Funding Opportunities
There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and talk to the local Fisheries Team.

Fisheries representatives and local anglers who would like to attend one of the workshops should contact Joan Allen via 08708 506 506 for an application form. Confirmation of each place, along with map and agenda, will be sent by post.
