Fishing

2017 saw the Suffolk branch of the Masonic Fishing Charity have another successful year.

In 2018 two events are planned, the first on 24th May which has been very kindly sponsored by Brett Valley Lodge 9479 and will be taking place at Hintlesham Trout Lake. This day will be catering for a mixture of troubled, autistic and disabled children so should be a great event for all involved. The second will be held on 27th September, the location and school is to be confirmed.

If any brethren are aware of any schools or groups that would like to attend an event, especially in the north of the Province, please contact us on the details below. These events are free of charge to the participants and they provide an outside experience like no other, some feedback from our events during 2017 include one young disadvantaged teenager stating “It was the best day of my life” another told a masonic casting tutor “I wish you were my dad”. It is just as satisfying for the casters as the children and shows that we really are making a difference to our communities.

The group will be fund raising during 2018 for a new outdoor gazebo or large tent in which to hold their events. All of the Suffolk masonic fishing days are funded through donations from Suffolk Masons, the events are often in need of casters to assist the children and you simply need to be a competent fisherman either coarse or fly and have a DBS check undertaken, which we can organise free of charge.

The Suffolk branch is led by a group from Court Knoll Lodge and can be contacted via Jon Neil - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
