Countryside fun for city kids

Have your say

HUNDREDS of city youngsters are set to dive into learning about sustainable fishing in the countryside.

Sheffield teens are also to discover river management, and wetland habitat conservation, with their Bakewell counterparts thanks to a £19,000 grant from The Peak District National Park’s sustainable development fund.

The Sheffield Black and Ethnic Minority Network is running the project for up to 200 youngsters at a total cost of £28,600.

Field trips, workshops and a residential course are to go ahead and it is hoped the scheme will create a new network angling club.

The fund supported many other environmental, educational and social projects, including a tools exhibition in Bradfield.
