Boost as Browne's Pond angling project gets some new gear
3:30pm Wednesday 16th October 2013 in News
A PROJECT which offers young people in Bridgwater the chance to try their hand at angling has received a boost.
Following an article in the Mercury, reader Shirley Garland made contact with the organisers of the scheme at Browne’s Pond to donate some equipment.
A spokesman for the Friends of Browne’s Pond said: “Shirley’s late partner Ron Krug, who died earlier this year, had been an enthusiastic angler.
“He had wanted his considerable collection of angling equipment to go to a good cause and Shirley was inspired by the article.
“She was impressed with what Friends of Browne’s Pond are trying to achieve, came to meet us and some young anglers and has now donated Ron’s collection to them.”
