Dean Asplin, Angling Trust Partnership Development Manager heard back from the Somerset Wildlife Trust about a Get Fishing event he helped arrange with them…
We had beautiful sunshine and a great day for 42 people of all ages and abilities to try fishing for the first time at an event I ran with the help of the Somerset Wildlife Trust. One of the Trust’s event organisers contacted me afterwards – it’s always nice to receive feedback like this!
I wanted to thank you and your colleagues on behalf of the Taunton Deane Area Group for a very successful event last Saturday.
All the feedback that we got was very positive and I’m sure that this was largely due to the helpful and supportive approach taken by your coaches. Please pass on our thanks to them.
Chair, Taunton Deane Area Group, Somerset Wildlife Trust
