After a successful short break at Wylands Fishery in Battle Mastersport Angling Coaches and staff are at hand to work with another group of disabled youngsters at Henfold Lakes in Surrey this week.

    Eight children from Manor Green College in Crawley will be taking part and this forms part of Mastersport's delivery to young people in West Sussex.

    In the school summer holidays the company will be providing sessions at Normans Bay Beach on the 20th August and a series of days at the East Stream in Normans Bay which has been adopted by Mastersport to help develop young Coarse Anglers.
