Clubmark is a nationally recognised indicator of quality. The Sport England initiative enables Parents and Carers to identify those clubs who are committed to providing a safe, effective, child friendly environment where sport in this case Angling can take place. Over the past two years, the club has received  grants to allow club members to be trained as coaches and help pass on their knowledge and skills to local young people. Last year alone saw over 120 local pupils take part in free angling sessions with coaches from the club. Pupils who took part in the coaching sessions as novices in previous years are now undertaking Leadership and Volunteering training to help assist in the delivery of the sessions to new participants.

The clubs success has been driven by a group of highly committed volunteers, committed to giving the local community a safe, effective environment where Angling can take place. Being awarded Clubmark recognises the club as one of the leading Angling clubs not only in the county but also in the East Midlands.

James Roche, Angling Development Board, Regional Development Officer commented: “Asfordby and Melton Society of Anglers are a brilliant example of how Angling can help develop the skills and ability of local young people. The club have a number of very passionate Anglers who are committed to developing a safe, effective environment for Anglers of all ages to come and participate.
