Angling to win future fans
ONLLWYN Community Council and their Neath Port Talbot counterparts are celebrating after making a splash.
They have developed the Banwen Community Fishery Project after receiving £18,000 from Natural Resources Wales and the Sports Council for Wales.
The new project has seen 16 new fishing platforms, a junior coaching area and path improvements installed.
The project's new Dulais Valley Angling Club, set up by councillor Andrew Jones, is proving popular. Chairman of Onllwyn Community Council, David Davies, said: "The pond is a great spot to spend your day and thanks to the success of this project, it is now accessible for everyone to come and use."
