Sign up to fish

ANGLERS are being invited to compete in an annual event to help a Morpeth-based charity.

Northumberland County Blind Association will hold its 10th anniversary fishing competition at Fontburn Reservoir, south of Rothbury, on July 29.

The organisation gives practical help to blind and partially-sighted people throughout the county.

Northumbrian Water is providing more support this year, with each competitor receiving a ‘golden ticket’ which gives free entry to a draw for a 2012 Northumbrian Water Explorer Season permit worth £799.

The cost of entry is £23 for adults and £10 for under-16s. There will be cash prizes for adults and tackle vouchers for under-16s.

For more information, contact the association on 01670 514316.
