Leamington Editorial 4th Apr, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

POLICE are hoping youngsters will be hooked in more ways than one at their crime prevention fishing fun day in Warwick.

Warwickshire Police, working in partnership with Stratford District Council’s rural crime team, has organised the free event on Sunday June 12.

The aim is to give children with disabilities or those from disadvantaged backgrounds an opportunity to learn about angling at Kingfisher Pools.

The day will be split into two sessions – one running from 10am to noon and the other from 1pm to 3pm – and there will be around 15 places available for each session.

The Whitnash Royals Angling Club, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary on the day, will carry out demonstrations, take the kids through the basics and give them an insight into the UK’s most popular participation sport.

The event will also see anglers and residents understand the fun of fishing while getting tips on how to keep their tackle safe using specialist property marking techniques.

Parking is free and disabled parking is also available. Access is through Myton Fields off Myton Road opposite Warwick School.

Call 01926 684361 or email wrc.snt@warwickshire.police.uk to book a place or for further information.
