Fishing spaces like Charlton’s Pond are absolutely brilliant. It's even good for the parents to have a spare half hour to chill out. Every time there’s a junior match on we come down. Sometimes it’s a bit difficult to stay the full time, but we try and stay as much as we can. But I think most of the time the kids like to see you there. I’ve never fancied angling myself, but it’s nice sometimes just to sit and watch them fish, it's relaxing. The only problem here is for the girls, there’s nowhere to go to the loo.
There used to be a big barrier on this estate, if you ever said anything to the police people would think you were a grass. If police had knocked at your door, as soon as they’d left people would be round there, "why’s police come to your door?"...Sometimes it’s still a bit like that, but now, I find I’m quite well known on the estate, people do actually come and talk to me, people do realise I’m out and about on the estate, people know about the BAIT project.
