Charity Weekend

Bishops Bowl Fishery raised £3500 this weekend, which will be split equally between Northamptonshire and Warwickshire air ambulance and McMillan nurses, having held their annual Pete Nimmo memoiral match.

Fishery owner Shaun said ‘it has been an exhausting weekend, but it has also been great fun, and to top it all we have raised over £3500 which will be split equally between the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire air ambulance, and McMillan nurses’. Shaun added 'everyone who came was there to enjoy themselves, and raise as much money as possible for these great causes, which is exactly what Pete would have wanted’.

Local angler James Taylor won the Bishops Bowl Lakes open match for the first time on Sunday, with 22lb 14oz of roach and small carp on Walworth Lake. 

James said, "I only decided to enter at the last minute, so it was a bit of a surprise, and to think I've now got a place in the March final, I am really pleased.

Shaun, the fishery owner explained, 'we are holding a 'roll up' contest, where entrants to all open matches between now and March all stand a chance of winning a substantial amount of money. It has the makings of an exciting March competition.

Second on Sunday was Rob Bassett with 22lb 8oz, third, Ron Allum 19lb 8oz.
