Has been a while since we last had a social evening and talk, in part down to changes in the past year.

So about time we rectified that Smile

An Evening with the TAC - guest speaker Martin Salter

We are delighted to announce that Martin Salter, ex MP for Reading West, TAC Patron, Angling Trust campaigns manager and a true champion of our sport is coming down to give a talk and slide show.

After leaving the house of commons Martin spent a year travelling Australia and fishing before returning to join the Angling Trust.

You can read more here Salter is back fighting for Fishing

Above all Martin is an angler and loves talking about nothing else, so should be a very good evening.

Along with fishing, Martin will be chatting about the Angling Trust and the issues that face us all today.

Hope you can join us for a great social evening.


Thursday 29th November 2012

Upstairs room at the:

The Bell Inn
8, Thames Street
Hampton
Middlesex
TW12 2EA

From 7:30 pm

Entrance is free but we will be passing the donations bucket around


Hope to see you there

Very enjoyable evening last night, thanks to everyone who came Smile

Martin is a top fella and very passionate about his angling and the issues that affect us all. One of the best things ever done by the Angling Trust getting him onboard

Really good evening - great to hear all about what the AT are up to from someone with so much enthusiasm and drive as Martin.

Considering what a short time they have been going, their precarious financial situation (now stabilised, but with nothing to spare) and the relatively miniscule %'age of anglers that join as individual members it's absolutely amazing what they have and are achieving. Martin with ihis contacts & persuasiveness he certainly seems to be able to access and influence people in high places. He even had me fully behind their Cormorant Campaign - something I've bee fairly ambivalent up until now.

If the above appears to be a puff to get more people to join the AT - well it is. Imagine what they could actually achieve with the backing & funds of a decent proportion of the country's anglers - say around a million membership similar to the RSPB. For a start they would/could have had a jolly good go at securing all the Cemex venues for continued angling access (one of their stated ambitions for the future regarding those venues not permanently lost to fishing).
