Carp Cup to be held at Summer Lane

Two Weston Angling Association members have organised the Summer Lane Pond Carp Cup.

TWO Weston Angling Association members, Dave Newman and Paul Swain, have organised the Summer Lane Pond Carp Cup.

It will take place at the pond near Morrisons and will consist of three qualifying matches on April 6, 12 and 13, when the top two anglers with the heaviest combined weight of carp progress to the final on April 20.

There will be prizes for first and second place, biggest overall fund-raiser and the biggest carp caught over the event and there will also be a barbecue after the presentation.

Each angler has to pay £30 for their place and raise an additional £10 minimum in sponsorship. All proceeds are going towards the Anglers Against Cancer chosen charity - beating bowel cancer.
