Downpatrick Councillor Cadogan EnrightDuring the month of July a meeting in Drumaness set the foundations for a new club for young people interested in fishing. Any young person interested in joining from the local area would be able to take part in organised fishing days, trips and activities for a fee of only £2 for one year’s membership.

The foundation of this club comes about after local anglers had worked to have the Drumaness River restocked in order to create a vibrant fish population and to increase the biodiversity of the river.

Green Party Cllr Cadogan Enright has welcomed the setting up of this new club hailing it as a great example of how local communities can provide activities and opportunities for young people in their area.

Cllr Enright said, “The Youth Fishing and Conservation Forum can only serve to increase young peoples interest in engaging in social activities that will provide them with new social experiences, outdoor skills and knowledge.”
