Therefore, we'd like to thank all the staff, suppliers, charities and organisations who came along and contributed to yet another hugely successful Open Weekend that continues to live up the title of "The Biggest and Best Free Fishing Event in UK." If you attended the event, we appreciate you coming along and supporting us and look forward to serving you in the coming weeks and months ahead.
