THE Kingfisher Fishing Club has received a boost to its work in the community with a £500 grant from the Mayoral Small Grant Fund.

The club, which was formed by The Friends of Rossington Brick Pond, brings together people of all ages, backgrounds and disabilities to take part in fishing at Rossington Brick Pond.

Malcolm Clark, project leader, said: “We’re delighted to receive funding from the Mayoral Small Grant Fund.

“Some of the grant was to help fund a children’s fishing competition at Rossington Brick Pond as well as buying T-shirts and caps emblazoned with ‘Kingfisher Fishing Club’, and tackle to help teach fishing to the younger members.”

The Mayoral Grant Scheme was launched last October and is aimed at any project that can demonstrate that it will help bring people of different backgrounds together.
