SEA ANGLING - FIFTY-ONE years ago, Weston Sea Angling Association held their first RNLI Open. Entrance was 12 shillings and six pence (62.5 new pennies).

This Sunday, November 1, sees the club's 51st annual event on Weston beach. The entry fee is a little higher than in 1958, but so are the prizes!

Last year, the lifeboatmen estimated they had already received over �20,000 from WSMSAA over the years, and were pleased to receive a further �600 from the 2008 event.

Helped by kind donors and in particular, a new chief sponsor, PRV Engineering, Pontypool, there will be an excellent prize table this year.
