We are a not for profit organisation called Angling Watch UK. We hold the lease on Lliswerey Pond. We offer cheap memberships as we are in the middle of 5 council estates.
Our aim is to raise as much as we can to be able to put a secure fencing around our community pond. We have been quoted £17.500. For the cost of the fencing around the perimeter of the pond.
We want to minimise the anti social behaviour on the pond and make it safer for the community and the anglers. We've worked really hard to make the pond a safer place for all to enjoy. A secure fencing around the pond is just what the community and anglers need.
We work very closely with disabled groups and boarding schools. We want to put huts on the pond so schools are able to come down and learn about the wildlife on the pond and do a bit of fishing, but until we can have a secure fencing around the pond we are unable to do this.
The gates will be open to the communities in the morning, then they will be locked up in the evening to help minimise the anti social behaviour around the community pond.
