An­glers land a great catch for school funds

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

EIGH­TEEN an­glers braved rain and wind to raise more than £660 for Ash­ford’s Wyvern School for chil­dren with spe­cial needs. Use of the Che­quer Tree Fish­ery in Bethersden, where the event was staged, was given free of charge by owner Chris Drew. Raf­fle prizes were do­nated by Ash­ford An­gling on the Elling­ham In­dus­trial Es­tate, Powawalker and Down­ham Tackle in South London. Gary Buckmaster, a mem­ber of the Ep­som Pis­ca­to­rial An­gling Club, won the tro­phy for the best over­all catch, land­ing fish weigh­ing 59lbs. The money raised will be used to fund the school’s ‘points’ stall which al­lows pupils to ex­change points earned from good work for gifts and treats at the end of each week. Event or­gan­is­ers Mar­ion and John Squire thanked ev­ery­one who took part in or spon­sored the day.
