What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The area was a well known spot for fishing but the Olympics have closed many areas to local anglers.
Fishing is the first participatory sport in the UK and many local people of all ages and abilities are currently unable to participate, especially if they do not have sufficient wealth to travel far and wide to good fishing grounds.
We are working hard to bring anglers back to the Lea River in Eastend, also hoping to inspire a new generation of anglers.
Angling has many social and health proven benefits and our inititiative will enhance quality of life in the East End.
Steps to get it done:
We need ntusiastic volunteers
