The picture tells the story of catching a fish for the first time better than any words on a page.
The picture was taken on a day out with INTACT organised through the Ingol & Tanterton Community Trust which Dreamstore supported with a small grant to buy angling equipment from a local tackle shop. Angling is delivered through INTACT’s youth club, which is community centred. The Environment Agency has provided some support in respect of fishery development for the group, though they have also successfully negotiated with a local farmer for free use of fishing on his land.
The Community centre supports an area of general deprivation, and the project engages with kids between 8-16 years old who wouldn’t have much else to do. The idea of the Club is to encourage the young people to take ownership of their recreation, under supervision.
