Nantwich Fishing competition was again a huge success with one winning young angler sweeping the board.

“The weather was perfect and everyone present had a fantastic time.  I will definitely be supporting next year’s event”, said David Keane, Police & Crime Commissioner. “It’s been a brilliant opportunity for the police to meet young people and commendable that the Nantwich Beat Team have made the annual event a fabulous success once again.”

The contestants and their families had an enjoyable day at the Bay Moulton Border Fisheries in Crewe catching the rays as well as the fish. Jim king won most improved angler, showing great commitment and enthusiasm while Adam Biddulph won heaviest individual fish (3lb) as well as overall bag weight champion with a total of 15lbs 2.

David Keane added:  “Public feedback during my recent consultation on police and crime priorities made it clear that they want to see police officers in their communities, talking and listening and better understanding the issues they face.

“It’s no different with young people – and in my new Police & Crime Plan I will be placing an emphasis on the Constabulary improving the way it engages with our different communities.”

The event was supported by Bay Moulton Border Fisheries, The Crown Hotel, Nantwich and Sainsbury’s Nantwich.
