Association Objectives

Association aims for now and in the future

The objects of the association, shall be, to promote, encourage and develop the sport of angling in Newton-le-Willows.

Our membership is open to all and we strive to offer the opportunity to all people to take part in the sport of coarse fishing, regardless of nationality or creed, ability or disability. (however the committee will refuse membership to those who they deem as undesirable.)

To provide the best possible standards of angling for our members, by proper fishery management policy, and adequate levels of stocking throughout our water courses.

To promote fair and proper competitive match angling, from within the association at both local and national level, for any and all our categories of members.

To encourage in particular junior angling, with coaching provided in- house and in local schools to ensure correct and proper practice within our sport, we feel that the junior of today is the future officers and committees of tomorrow.

We want to bring the sport to the disabled people in our area, and help them to enjoy our sport. (At the moment we offer help and advice to our local Out Reach Group, this is a local body for the mentally handicapped, they feel that angling is very therapeutic for their members.)
