GHOF Teeside (Charlton's Pond)

GHOF Teesside is a key research site for our exploration of community engagement. Our focus on GHOF Teesside has principally been on the re-generation of Charton's Pond, Billingham, where project co-ordinator Dave Munt is involved in the local angling club's junior section.

Little Britain Lake

The Borough of Hillingdon formed a case study of how local authorities can promote access to the benefits of angling, particularly for young people and their families.

Little Britain Lake, once an area associated with antisocial behaviour, was regenerated as part of the councils review of fishing venues suitable for young people. Paths were cleared and fishing platforms developed to provide a free family fishing venue. Since then two free Family Fishing Fun Days have been hosted at the lake, attracting over 1600 participants.
