Gone Fishin'

Fancy learning the art of angling, or are you looking to return to the sport?

Gone Fishin'

Telford Town Park is offering free angling sessions on the Withy Pool led by qualified angling coach Neil Powell.

Recent studies on the mental and physical benefits of angling have shown the sport to help older people and those recovering from illness. It also provides therapeutic engagement with outdoor environments for social interaction.

The sessions are free-of charge, funded by the Telford Sports and Recreation Trust Focus Grant Scheme.

They will take place at the Withy Pool between 10am and midday and 12.30-2.30pm on Saturday 6 August, Saturday 13 August, Sunday 14 August and Saturday 20 August.

To book onto sessions, or for more information, call the park Visitor Centre on 01952 382 340 or email telfordtownpark@telford.gov.uk.
