Flintshire farm reels in youngsters with fishing scheme

A NOVEL initiative to get children active in the countryside has got youngsters hooked.

Glasdir Farm Fishery, near Pentre Halkyn, has celebrated a successful year of competitions and training involving the Get Hooked on Fishing scheme, run in conjunction with Flintshire Neighbourhood Watch and North Wales Police.

Cllr Matt Wright said: “The support of the police in Flintshire has been excellent and I would like to thank Inspector Iwan Roberts, who joined myself and the chairman of Flintshire County Council to present awards.

“Giving youngsters something to do builds their confidence and helps to steer them in the right direction.”
