First Academy in 2012 starts in Quedgeley.

Our first Dreamstore Academy in 2012 is taking place in Quedgeley, Gloucester. It is supporting the launch of a new Angling for Youth Development project being led by the local Police. There’s a great team being trained to work in the voluntary sector, and that extends to volunteers from the community and from the local police station and community organisations. Thanks to the South West Snooker Academy for the use of their excellent conference facilities for the course.

For the first time on an Academy course we introduced preliminary water training. Richard Humphrey, Chairman of AFYD, introduced our Academy participants and local police to the basics of water safety alongside flowing water – though for a first introduction we used a wet car park.


The Academy course is over three weekends and concludes towards the end of March.
